This book introduces the fundamental concepts and practical simulation techniques for modeling different aspects of operating systems to study their general behavior and their performance. The approaches applied are object-oriented modeling and the process interaction approach to simulation. Most other books on performance modeling use only analytical approaches, and very few apply these modeling concepts to the study of operating systems. Thus, the unique feature of the book is that it concentrates on the study of operating systems using practical simulation techniques. In addition, the book illustrates the dynamic behavior of operating systems using a rich collection of simulation models. The book does not present the detailed theory of operating systems which appears in standard textbooks on the subject. In this respect, this book is a supplemental book to the standard operating systems textbooks, and it concentrates on the practical aspects of performance modeling with simulation.
