    The President's message, normally carried in this slot, is replaced this month by a brief profile on the Computer Society's Executive Secretary and his wife — two people who for the past two years have worked steadily (and anonymously) on some of the less glamorous aspects of Society activities.

    Historically, the interaction between operating systems and computer architecture has largely been very one-directional. Only recently have engineers begun to more fully appreciate that traditional hardware cost-performance tradeoffs are not entirely appropriate for stored-program machines. The operating system may be the most complex program ever written for the machine, as well as the one most f... View full abstract»

    The organizers of the Workshop on the Interaction of Operating Systems and Computer Architecture were motivated by two principal considerations: 1) call the attention of hardware designers to the growing maturity of the study of resource and process control algorithms; and 2) cause software system designers and implementers to focus on the developing trends and capabilities in computer architectur...

    IBM System/360 I/O architecture was designed at a time when relatively little was known about structured programming and hierarchically constructed operating systems. These techniques have been used in an operating systems project begun some 2–1/2 years ago in Canada to implement an I/O Supervisor which models the hierarchy present in the I/O hardware. The interfaces between the various sof... View full abstract»

    Computer designers and users have felt the need for monitoring the behavior of their systems since the earliest days of the computer era. However, only very few and recent systems have been adequately instrumented by their designers during the design stage (see for example reference 1). This situation has led to the development of hardware and software measurement tools having the common property ... View full abstract»

  • The impact of automated memory management on software architecture

    Much of the current programming effort for conventional computers is spent in planning the allocation of primary and secondary memory during the execution of a program. Virtual memory systems were introduced in order to free the programmer from much of the time-consuming and routine work associated with memory management. However, when a program requires more memory locations than are available in... View full abstract»
