A is generally implemented by a fixed-rate clock and a counter. The operating system sets the counter. Every time the clock ticks, the counter is decremented. When the counter reaches 0, an interrupt occurs. For instance, a 10-bit counter with a 1-millisecond clock allows interrupts at intervals from 1 millisecond to 1,024 milliseconds, in steps of 1 millisecond. Before turning over control to the user, the operating system ensures that the timer is set to interrupt. i:rn~:. Clearly,il~structions that modify the content of the timer are privileged.
In selecting a memory-management scheme for a specific system, we must take into account many factors-especially the hardware design of the system. Each algorithm requires its own hardware support. The operating system is responsible for the following activities in connection with memory management: Keeping track of which parts of memory are currently being used and by whom Deciding which processes (or parts thereof) and data to move into and out of memory Allocating and deallocating memory space as needed Memory-management techniques are discussed il1 Chapters 8 and 9.

For more about Linux, see Chapter 21. 8. 3 BSD UNIX has a longer and more complicated history than Linux. It started in 1978 as a derivative of AT&T's UNIX. Releases from the University of California at Berkeley (UCB) came in source and binary form, but they were not opensource because a license from AT&T was required. 4BSD-lite, was released in 1994. IX, there are many distributions of BSD UNIX, including FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, and DragonflyBSD.
