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. Example: Mac OS.

Example of multiprogramming operating system?

Windows, Linux, Unix.

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.

Briefly compare active and passive multiprogramming?

Passive multiprogramming is characterized by event generated interrupts that cause task switching. These events are usually the result of a program-initiated action, such as sending a record to an output device, or dividing by zero. Active multiprogramming is characterized by time generated interrupts that cause task switching. The time interrupt is generated by a system clock monitored by the operating system.
