Question details

Concurrent or parallel execution can contribute to issues involving the integrity of data shared by several processes. Furthermore, the growing importance of multicore systems has brought an increased emphasis on developing multithreaded applications. It’s important that changes resulting from running multiple threads do not interfere with one another.

  • To ensure the data integrity of the threads, it’s important to have process synchronization and coordination among cooperating processes. The critical section problem is an important consideration in process synchronization. Please discuss the critical section problem. At a minimum, this discussion must include the following:
    • An explanation of critical section and its important feature(s)
    • An explanation of the critical section problem
    • The requirements a solution to the critical section problem must satisfy
    • The general approaches used to handle critical sections in operating systems
