RTOS has unfair scheduling i.e scheduling is based on priority. GPOS has fair scheduling i.e it can be adjusted dynamically for optimized. well, in GPOS the code is not modular i.e. developer can not choose Kernel modules selectively. GPOSes are not scalable. but in the case of RTOS Kernel code. The main difference between GPOS and RTOS is that the RTOS should be deterministic. That is, the time consumed by the operating system to.

Using inverters with AC generators.

If we go even beyond there are many many points to discuss, but it is not in the scope of this article. RTOS must handle this.

Difference between RTOS and GPOS.

So I am rewriting this post so that most of you can benefit. This ensures highly predictable and quick response from an RTOS. A user can run many applications at the same time. You may also like: Are ROTSs really fast?

A system can be of a single purpose or multiple purpose.

What is the main difference between GPOS and RTOS?

In between a high priority thread comes, If your kernel is non-preemptive until system call finishes your high priority thread would not get to execute. A high priority process execution will get override only if a request comes from an even high priority process. Where as in an RTOS — scheduling is always priority based. Creation of new address space for each task and managing it takes time. Threading interview question August 16, Its all about money, if you can save even 25 cents on one embedded device hardware, and embedded devices are sold in millions of units say memory card Companies can make millions of dollars.


In RTOS however if high priority process is ready to run it will start executing ‘very soon’. It is economical to port an RTOS to an embedded system of limited expectations and functionalities Example: Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.

As doctor in movie ‘I, Robot’ says to Will Smith “Now, that’s the right question” Preemption is very important criteria which I explained earlier, Kernel should have enough preemptive points from where it can return. How fast is your interrupt handler.

What’s The Difference Between A RTOS And A GPOS?

To achieve this goal, the RTOS kernel must be simple and as elegant as possible. To sum up interrupt differrnce comes from 1. The purpose of a PC is multiple. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Lets take the case of task scheduling first.

Before going deep down, it will be good if you read this article from Howstuffworks- about Operating Systems. Here throughput means — the total number of processes that complete their execution per unit time. I hope you got the basic idea now! Its a different topic alltogether.

There would be some delays some times, but a carefully designed RTOS will have those delays very small. That’s kind of recommended approach. Previous post Next post. In some cases the OS may decay the priority or dyanamically adjust of the thread in order to achive fairness. Normally, in OS terminology, we call this kind of signals interrupt.


So from where other Latency Comes? Disabling of interrupts spin lock etc 2. Notify me of new posts by email. If kernel is preemptive you can determine the worst time where High priority thread would start execution.

Many Embedded interviewer ask this question.

Previous story What are the different types of OS? An RTOS is used for time critical systems. The card user will not wait 5 minutes at the ATM after he pressed the confirm button.

So RTOS interrupt handling mechanism should take of above points. This may cause jitters in RTOS env. It means low priority task will be preemted even if its executing any system call. So an ATM is a time critical system. Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

If you want to really know the topic spend mins to read ajd understand it. We can also say an RTOS is supposed to give quick and predictable response. Q69 How to dynamically allocate memory to multi-dimensional arrays?

Here a high priority process gets executed over the low priority ones.
