This text introduces the fundamental concepts and practical simulation techniques for modelling different aspects of operating systems to study their general behaviour and their performance.The approaches applied are object-oriented modelling and the process interaction approach to simulation. Most other books on performance modelling use only analytical approaches, and very few apply these modelling concepts to the study of operating systems. Thus, a key 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 behaviour 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 modelling with simulation.
