  • NachOSNot Another Completely Heuristic Operating System

    Written by Tom Anderson and his students at UC Berkeley in 1992 http://www.cs.washington.edu/homes/tom/nachos/

  • What is NachOSAn educational OS used toTeach monolithic kernel design and implementationDo experiments, you can (and will) modify and extend itFactReal hardware is difficult to handleMay break if handled wrong

  • What is NachOSApproachUse a virtual MIPS machineProvide some basic OS elementsIncludes many facets of a real OS:ThreadsInterruptsVirtual MemoryI/O driven by interrupts

  • What is NachOSNachOS also contains some hardware simulationMIPS processorCan handle MIPS code in standard COFF, except for floating point instructionsYou can (and will) write code in C/C++, compile it to MIPS and run it on NachOSConsole, Network interface, Timer

  • How does it workRun as a single UNIX processProvide a skeletal OS that supportsThreadsUser-level processesVirtual memoryInterrupt-driven I/O devices

  • How does it workTwo modes of executionNachOS kernelExecutes whenNachOS starts upA user-program causes a hardware trap (page fault, syustem call, etc.)MIPS simulatorInitialized and started by NachOS kernel

  • How does it work

  • How does it workSimulates MIPS architecture on host system (UNIX / Linux / Windows / MacOS X)User programs need a cross-compiler (target MIPS)NachOS appears as a single threaded process to the host operating system

  • How does it work

  • How does it work

  • Source TreeRoot directoryC++ introduction to teach how to write C++Root directory of Nachoss source codeFile systemNachoss libraryMIPS machineIn/Out message queuesNachOSs sample user programsthreadsSource code of NachOS kernel and MIPS simulatorThe tool to convert user programs from MIPSs COFF into NachOSs NOFF (NachOS Object File Format ) formatUser programs interfaces: system calls, address space, noff format

  • System Start UPcode/threads/main.cc main> ./nachos startcreate kernel objectinitialize the systemInvoke user programLoad user programRun user programSystem halt and terminate No user program

  • Install NachOSPlatform: Linux or Linux over VMwareRedHat Linux 9.0 (ftp.tku.edu.tw)Install stepsGet NachOS-4.0wget http://dslab.csie.ncu.edu.tw/OS2006/nachos-4.0.tar.gzGet Cross Compilerwget http://dslab.csie.ncu.edu.tw/OS2006/mips-decstation.linux-xgcc.tgzMove Cross Compiler to /mv ./mips-decstation.linux-xgcc.tgz /Untar Cross Compilertar zxvf /mips-decstation.linux-xgcc.tgz

  • Install NachOSUntar NachOS-4.0tar zxvf ./nachos-4.0.tar.gzMake NachOS-4.0cd ./nachos-4.0/codemakeTest if installation is succeededcd ./userprog./nachos -e ../test/test1./nachos -e ../test/test2You should see the following

  • The test1 resultTotal threads number is 1Thread ../test/test1 is executing.Print integer:9Print integer:8Print integer:7Print integer:6return value:0No threads ready or runnable, and no pending interrupts.Assuming the program completed.Machine halting! Ticks: total 200, idle 66, system 40, user 94Disk I/O: reads 0, writes 0Console I/O: reads 0, writes 0Paging: faults 0Network I/O: packets received 0, sent 0

  • The test2 resultTotal threads number is 1Thread ../test/test2 is executing.Print integer:20Print integer:21Print integer:22Print integer:23Print integer:24Print integer:25return value:0No threads ready or runnable, and no pending interrupts.Assuming the program completed.Machine halting!

    Ticks: total 200, idle 32, system 40, user 128Disk I/O: reads 0, writes 0

  • Operate NachOSNachOS command help./nachos -hDebugging mode./nachos -sExecute files on NachOS./nachos -e ../test/test1

  • Recompile Modified NachOS Codecd nachos-4.0/codemake clean (optional)makeIf you want to fully re-compile the source code, make clean is required. Or make will only re-compile the modified and related files. (save time)

  • Trace NachOSRead *.h and *.cc to have an overview about the whole system and see how it is implementedDocumentation (A Road Map Through NachOS)http://www.cs.duke.edu/~narten/110/nachos/main/main.html

  • Assignment 1NachOS NachOS (word ) linux

  • Assignment 2 nachos-4.0/code/userprog ./nachos e ../test/test1 e ../test/test2Total threads number is 2Thread ../test/test1 is executing.Thread ../test/test2 is executing.Print integer:9Print integer:8Print integer:7Print integer:20Print integer:21Print integer:22

  • Assignment 2 (cont.)Please trace the following files to see why the output results are wrongnachos-4.0/code/userprog/addrspace.hnachos-4.0/code/userprog/addrspace.ccnachos-4.0/code/userprog/userkernel.ccnachos-4.0/code/machine/translate.hNachos-4.0/code/machine/translate.cc

  • Assignment 2 (cont.)Please modified the Nachos code to run the correct resultsYou may need to modify the following functionsnachos-4.0/code/userprog/addrspace.ccconstructordestructorinitRegisterLoad

  • Assignment 3Implement system call SleepImplement Shortest-Job-First scheduling

  • System call Sleep Sleep(int x) system call, system call thread block, x timer interrupts READY

  • System call Sleep (cont.) exception.cc, syscall.h, start.s alarm.cc WaitUntil(int x) Sleep(int x) system call

  • SJF Scheduling (cont.) non-preemptive timer interrupts thread yield thread thread CPU burst (timer interrupts ), CPU burst
