#1. Windows NT Models What is an OS Model? It is a broad framework that unifies the many features and services the system provides and the tasks it performs. a >. Client / Server model Windows NT system: Combination of Layered model and client / server model. Layered model is one which divides the O/S into modules and layers them one on top of the other. Each module provides a set of functions that other modules can call. Benefits for using client / server model Simplifies the base OS, the executive. Improves reliability. Lends itself well to a distributed computing model.

a >. Client /Server model Is one which devices OS into several processes, each of which implements a single set of services. Client Application Memory Server Network Server Process Server File Server Display Server Microkernel Hardware Client /Server Operating System Reply Send
b >. Object model Object model Is one that any system resources such as files, shared memory and physical devices is implemented as an object and manipulated by using object services so that resources can be shared by more than one process. Benefits for using object model OS can access and manipulate its resources uniformly. Security is simplified because all objects are protected in the same way. Objects provide a convenient and uniform paradigm for sharing resources between two or more processes.

Symmetric multiprocessing Symmetric multiprocessing is to allow OS running on any free processor or on all processors simultaneously, sharing memory among them.
Benefits for being multiprocessing system Ability to run OS code on any available processor and on multiple processors at one time. Multiple threads of execution within a single process. Server processes that use multiple threads to process requests from more than one client simultaneously. Convenient mechanisms for sharing objects between processes and flexible interposes communication capabilities, including shared memory and an optimized message-passing facility.
#2. Windows NT Structure The Windows NT’s structure can roughly be divided into two parts: the user-mode portion (protected subsystems) and kernel-mode portion (NT executive).

Protected subsystems (environment and integral)

#4. Additional / Windows NT Architectures a >. Internationalization A Locale consists of a language, a country, a code set, the binary codes used to represent the characters of a particular language. To facilitate localization, Windows NT’s Win32 subsystem provides a national language support (NLS) API. Unicode, a 16-bit character-coding scheme, can represent 65,536 characters so that it is enough to include all languages in computer commerce today.

b >.Structured exception handling Structured exception handling is the met hod used in windows NT for processing both hardware and software exceptions, using the control structure of a programming language.
