Memory partitioning is the way to distribute the Kernel and User Space Area in Memory.

Paging is actually a minimum memory, which can be swap in and swap out from Memory. In modern Server operating systems, we can use Multiple Page Size Support. That actually helps to tune OS performance, depending on type of applications.

The real-time operating system used for a real-time application means for those applications where data processing should be done in the fixed and small quantum of time. It is different from general purpose computer where time concept is not considered as much crucial as in Real-Time Operating System. RTOS is a time-sharing system based on clock interrupts. Interrupt Service Routine (ISR) serve the interrupt, raised by the system. RTOS used Priority to execute the process. When a high priority process enters in system low priority process preempted to serve higher priority process. Real-time operating system synchronized the process. So that they can communicate with each other. Resources can be used efficiently without wastage of time.

Parallel Processing Systems are designed to speed up the execution of programs by dividing the program into multiple fragments and processing these fragments simultaneously. Such systems are multiprocessor systems also known as tightly coupled systems. Parallel systems deal with the simultaneous use of multiple computer resources that can include a single computer with multiple processors, a number of computers connected by a network to form a parallel processing cluster or a combination of both.

Dead-Lock is occurred in multiple users Computing Environment. As we know that there is Many Number of users those are going to perform their Transactions. Dead-Lock has occurred when two or More Users are requesting for data item or for a Resource of System for example two or more users Request for the Printers at a Same Time and When Dead-Lock has occurred.

Inter-Process Communication : Cooperating processes can communicate in a shared-memory environment. Cooperating processes communicate with each other via an Inter-Process-Communication (IPC) facility.

As we know that memory is that which stores the programs and these programs are used by the CPU for processing.  And there are two types of memories first is the logical memory and second is the physical memory. the memory which is temporary such as ram is also known as the temporary memory and the memory which is permanent such as hard disk is also known as the physical memory of system.

Network Operating System is an operating system that includes special functions for connecting computers and devices into a local-area network (LAN) or Inter-network. Some popular network operating systems are Novell Netware, Windows NT/2000, Linux, Sun Solaris, UNIX, and IBM OS/2.

As we know that operating system is that which executes the system and the operating system is the software which is responsible for running all the user programs so that generally memory is divided in to the two parts, first part is used by the operating system and the second part is used by the user programs and there may be some situations that the memory size of the operating system may be higher from the user memory and also vice versa.

A computer system can be divided into five components; the hardware, the operating system, the utilities, the application programs and the end users. Following diagram shows the actual position of an operating system among these components.
