Databases for Soft Real Time System

In disk based scheduling, the disks are located and traced by traversing the sectors and tracks. Tracks are concentric circles and sectors are just originating from the center of the disks.
So, disk scheduling algorithms are slower when compared with the memory based scheduling. Under disk based scheduling
Ta is the access time
Tw is the time spent in queue
Tp is the time to position the arm to locate the sectors and track
Tt is the time taken to transfer the block of data.
Since Tp is in the order of few milliseconds, but CPU time is hardly around 50nano seconds, so disk based scheduling algorithms are not suitable for hard real time systems. However these algorithms, can be made useful for soft real time systems. Disk based scheduling will be useful for Soft Real time system based on the following algorithms
First Come First Serve (FCFS)

The task or transaction which comes first will be scheduled and then the next, here the main problem is if the requests are huge then this algorithm is not suitable.
Elevator or Scan policy

Scans in one direction and serves the requests, if not then comes to starting position and runs again from the beginning. In the following diagram, the requests are dark lines and servings are given in dotted arrow lines. In this first case, the order of servings will be 3,4,5,9,1,1,2 (as 3,4,5,9 are over, it comes back to its position and starts from 1 and 1 and then 2) the other method will be scans in one direction and serves the requests, if not reverse the direction and serves the request and comes to starting position and then starts for the next cycle . The following example depicts both. In this the order of serving will be 3,4,5,9,2,1,1 (after 3,4,5 and9, the servings are reversing, so that 2,1,1) or the third method will be allocation of priority to requests. But who will give and how to set priority to the new requests.

Implementing a new system call in Kernel version 2.6.32

A system call is used by application or user programs to request service from the operating systems. Since the user programs does not have direct access to the kernel whereas the OS has the direct access. OS can access the hardware through system calls only. The following files has to be modified for implementing a system call /usr/src/linux- /usr/src/linux- /usr/src/linux- /usr/src/linux- New set of files to be created Create a new directory newcall/ inside the path “ /usr/src/linux- ” Create new files Makefile, newcall.c and put them in the /usr/src/linux- folder Create new user files (in any folder of Linux) to test the system call testnewcall.c, testnewcall.h (created in /home/pradeepkumar ) syscall_table_32.S Find the file /usr/src/linux-

How to Access MOODLE in Intranet and Internet

When Moodle is accessed either in Intranet or internet, there will not be any issue. But occasions when the MOODLE Site has to be accessed both in the intranet and in the Internet, here is a simple trick Server Used: IBM Blade Servers Operating system: Windows Server 2008 Moodle Version: 2.4 WAMP Server is used. Number of Users: 3000 (Students) + 200 (Faculty) Open the config.php from ~/moodle/config.php include these lines $CFG->wwwroot = 'http://'.$server_id.'/vitcc'; $CFG->dataroot  = 'C:\\wamp\\moodledata'; before the following line $CFG->directorypermissions = 07xx; Restart the WAMP Server and you can Check MOODLE Site both in Internet and Intranet. The above Image tells the intranet Link and the internet link can be opened outside the campus network
