Best Answer

In Multiprogramming it is possible to run several programs at same time rather than one at a time in uniprogramming..

and higher resource utilization.

'What is the difference between multiprogramming and multitasking and what is meaning of a task if we consider a task as a program then the concept will be multiprogramming then what is the differenc?

First of all there is difference between program and a task. There may be multiple tasks running related to one program at the same time. so if the processor is busy in multiple tasks related to one program then it is multitasking. But if the multiple tasks which the processor is executing concurrently are related to different independent programs then the concept is know as multiprogramming.

What is the difference between Real time system and Multiprogrammed system?

Time Sharing 01. Time Sharing is the logical extension of multiprogramming, in this time sharing Operating system many users/processes are allocated with computer resources in respective time slots. Multiprogramming 01. Multiprogramming operating system allows to execute multiple processes by monitoring their process states and switching in between processes. Time Sharing 02.Processors time is shared with multiple users thatโ€™s why it is called as time sharing operating system. Multiprogramming 02.Processor and memory underutilization problem is resolved and multiple programs runs on CPU thatโ€™s why it is called multiprogramming. Time Sharing 3. In time sharing OS system depends on time to switch between different processes. Multiprogramming 3. In Multiprogramming OS, system depends on devices to switch between tasks such I/O interrupts etc. Time Sharing 4. System model of time sharing system is multiple programs and multiple users. Multiprogramming 4. System model of multiprogramming system is multiple programs. Time Sharing 5. In this process, two or more users can use a processor in their terminal. Multiprogramming 5. In this, the process can be executed by a single processor. Time Sharing **6.**Time sharing OS has fixed time slice. Multiprogramming 7. Multi-programming OS has no fixed time slice. Time Sharing **8.**Time sharing system maximizes response time. Multiprogramming 8. Multiprogramming system maximizes response time. Time Sharing 9. Example: Windows NT. Multiprogramming 9.

What is the difference between multitasking and multiprograming?

Multitasking is being able to do more than one thing at a time. Multiprogramming is using more than one 'language' to accomplish a task.


What is difference between uni-programming and multiprogramming?

multiprogramming or multitasking means more than one program can execute at the same time. It is the allocation of a computer system and its resources to more than one application at the same time. However in uni-programming you can have only one program running at any point in time.

Differentiate between multiprocessing and multiprogramming?

Multiprocessing means the computer can do multiple processes parallel of each other (at the same time) with no performance degradation. Multiprogramming is an application that can be used to interface with different programming languages (java, C++, etc)


Difference between batch operating system and multiprogrammed operating system?

multiprogramming-there is no way for single user to keep either cpu or the io divices busy at all times...


When we say a system is a multiprogramming system?

Multiprogramming is collecting several jobs in a job pool and the OS selects the job from the pool so that the CPU has one job to execute , in case of any IO request for the job in execution the CPU switches to another job here switching is less compared to multitasking.So a computer system which allows such type of switching in between jobs is called a multiprogramming system. Please make note that multitasking is done by user but multiprogramming is done by operating system only.


What is the principal disadvantge of too much multiprogramming?

The principal disadvantge of too much multiprogramming is the overhead of excesssive context-switching. If the context-switch rate is too high, the overhead can actually overwhelm the benefit of multiprogramming.


What are advantages of multiprogramming over non multiprogramming?

Multiprogramming is the rapid switching of the CPU between multiple processes in memory. It is done only when the currently running process requests I/O, or terminates. It was commonly used to keep the CPU busy while one or more processes are doing I/O. It is now mostly superceded by multitasking, in which processes also lose the CPU when their time quantum expires. Multiprogramming makes efficient use of the CPU by overlapping the demands for the CPU and its I/O devices from various users. It attempts to increase CPU utilization by always having something for the CPU to execute. The prime reason for multiprogramming is to give the CPU something to do while waiting for I/O to complete. If there is no DMA, the CPU is fully occupied doing I/O, so there is nothing to be gained (at least in terms of CPU utilization) by multiprogramming.


What is the main advantage of multiprogramming?

Multiprogramming increases CPU utilization by organizing jobs so that the CPU always has a job to execute.
