Abstract:

This report focuses on Microsoft registered Windows NT registered operating system primitives, specifically low level kernel primitives. Low level kernel primitives were examined to provide some insight into Windows NT registered system characteristics and capabilities. Context switch, pre-emption, and interrupt latency exhibited a high degree of bearing on given systems capability and potential for real time response. The overall discoveries and subsequent details of this report confirm earlier findings that the Microsoft registered Windows NT registered operating system is capable of supporting limited soft real time deadlines.
