2 The part of OS that implements device management is called collectively as device manager, which includes device drivers and device driver infrastructure Device drivers can be complex However, the drivers for different devices implement a similar interface so that a higher-level component has a uniform interface for different devices 2

10 Responsible for directly manipulating the hardware devices Several strategies Direct I/O: CPU stays in control Use device polling Use interrupts Memory-mapped I/O Direct memory access 10

11 Direct I/O The CPU is responsible for determining when the I/O operation has completed and then for transferring the data between the primary memory and the device controller data registers Polling or interrupt-driven I/O This seems not effective for devices with large transfers, such as a disk drive Direct Memory Access (DMA) 11

12 Direct memory access controllers Can read/write data directly from/to primary memory addresses with no CPU intervention after the driver has started the I/O operation 12

20 At the end of each instruction cycle, we check if an interrupt has occurred 20

22 In general, an interrupt-driven system will have a higher CPU utilization than a polling- based system The CPU time on polling by one process may be utilized by another process to perform computation 22

23 Polling is normally superior from the viewpoint of a single process Because overhead of polling is less Interrupt-driven I/O approach gives better overall system performance 23

24 I/O-bound process A processs overall execution time is dominated by the time to perform I/O operations Compute-bound process A processs time on I/O is small compared to the amount of time spent using the CPU Many processes have I/O-bound and compute- bound phases 24

44 44 Track (Cylinder) Sector (a) Multi-surface Disk(b) Disk Surface(b) Cylinders Cylinder (set of tracks)

45 Access time has three major components Seek time – the time for the disk arm to move the heads to the cylinder containing the desired sector Rotational latency – the additional time waiting for the disk to rotate the desired sector to the disk head Transfer Time - time to copy bits from disk surface to memory 45

46 Several techniques used to try to optimize the time required to service an I/O request FCFS – first come, first served Requests are serviced in order received No optimization SSTF – shortest seek time first Find track closest to current track Could prevent distant requests from being serviced 46

47 Scan/Look Starts at track 0, moving towards last track, servicing requests for tracks as it passes them Reverses direction when it reaches last track Look is variant; ceases scan in a direction once last track request in that direction has been handled Circular Scan/Look Similar to scan/look but always moves in same direction; doesnt reverse Relies on existence of special homing command in device hardware 47

48 Multiprogramming on I/O-bound programs => set of processes waiting for disk Seek time dominates access time => minimize seek time across the set Example: Tracks 0:299; Head at track 76, requests for 124, 17, 269, 201, 29, 137, 12 48

49 49 First-Come-First-Served (76), 124, 17, 269, 201, 29, 137, 12 => = 880 steps

50 50 Shortest-Seek-Time-First (76), 29, 17, 12, 124, 137, 201, 269 => = 321 steps

51 51 Scan (76), 124, 137, 201, 269, 299, 29, 17, 12 => = 510 steps Look (76), 124, 137, 201, 269, 29, 17, 12 => = 450 steps

52 52 Circular Scan/ Circular Look Circular Look: (76), 124, 137, 201, 269, 12, 17, home = home Circular Scan: (76), 124, 137, 201, 269, 299, 12, 17, home = home

53 While it builds on the same basic principles, it is more complex and with more details There are a lot of device drivers included and you can also develop your own device drivers for specific purpose devices Linux divides into char-oriented devices and block oriented devices fs/blk_dev.c fs/char_dev.c See pp

55 API model is the same as for a file Extend device management by adding modules to the stream Device driver is invoked via an Interrupt Request Packet (IRP) IRP can come from another stream module IRP can come from the OS Driver must respond to minimum set of IRPs 55
