Abstract:

This paper presents a proposal for an implementation of monitors and condition variables. The proposed implementation allows the use of a large number of monitors and condition variables with main memory requirements proportional to the number of concurrent processes and the maximum depth of nested monitor calls. The proposed implementation is useful for operating systems with a fixed and small number of concurrent processes with virtual memory. Author
