What is the difference between hard real-time and soft real-time OS?
Critical task completion on time is guaranteed by a hard real time system. The
tasks needed for delays in the system are to be bounded by retrieving the
stored data at the time which takes the operating system to complete any
A critical task obtains a priority over other tasks and maintaining that
priority until the completion of the task. This is performed by a soft real
time system. The system kernel delays need to be bounded as in the case of hard
real time system.
Answer - In Unix and some other operating systems, a daemon is
a computer program that runs.........
Answer - A mutex and the binary semaphore are essentially the
