Description:
In this assignment you will simulate a Three-State process model (ready,
running and blocked) and a simple process control block structure as dis-
cussed in Chapter 3. Your program will read input and directives from a
le. The input describes a time sequence of events that occur. These are the
full set of events you will simulate:
1
Event Description
cpu The processor executes for 1 time step the currently running process
new A new process is created and put at tail of the ready queue
done The currently running process has nished
wait X The currently running process has done an I/O operation and
is waiting on event X
event X Event X has occurred, the process waiting on that event should
be made ready.
The input le will simply be a list of events that occur in the system, in
the order they are to occur. For example:
—– simulation-01.sim ——–
new
cpu
cpu
cpu
new
cpu
cpu
cpu
cpu
wait 1
cpu
cpu
event 1
cpu
cpu
done
cpu
cpu
cpu
cpu
exit
———————————-
Your task is to read in the events, and simulate the creation and execution
of processes in the system as they move through the various three-states of
their process life cycle. You need to:
2
ˆ Dene a simple process control block (PCB) to hold information about
all processes currently running in your system. The PCB can be a
simple C struct or a C++ class. At a minimum you need to have a
eld for the process identier and the process state (Ready, Running or
Blocked). You need to also keep track of the time step that the process
entered the system, and the number of steps the process has been
running. Minimal credit will be given to programs that at least handle
new events and create a process in a simulated PCB. You probably
need a list or an array to hold the current processes that have been
created and are being managed by your simulated system.
ˆ You will need a ready queue of some kind. You should use a C++
Standard Template Library (STL) container to manage your ready
queue.
ˆ You will need to implement a simple dispatcher function. Whenever
a cpu event occurs, and no process is currently running, you should
select the next Ready process from the head of your ready queue and
start it running on the processor.
ˆ You need to also implement a simple time slicing mechanism. The
time slice value to use will be passed into your program when it is
started. At the end of a cpu cycle, you should check if the currently
running process has executed for its full time quantum. In that case,
the currently running process should timeout, and be returned to the
end of the Ready queue.
ˆ new events should cause a new process to be created (including creating
its PCB and lling it in). New processes should be placed on the tail
of the ready queue after being created. You should assign each new
process a process identier. The process identier should be a simple
integer value, and you should start numbering processes from 1.
ˆ For a done event, if a process is currently running it should then be
released. It should be removed from the CPU, and not placed back on
the ready or blocked queue. If a done occurs when the CPU is idle,
then nothing will happen as a result of this event.
ˆ A wait event simulates the currently running process performing some
I/O operation. If a wait occurs, the currently running process should
become blocked and put on the blocked queue. You also need an entry
in the PCB so you know what event the process is waiting for. The
3
wait event is followed by an integer number, which is an indication of
the type of event the process has requested.
ˆ Likewise the event directive simulates the nishing of some I/O oper-
ation. When an event occurs, you should scan your blocked processes
and make any process ready that was waiting on that event. The in-
teger value following an event indicates the type of event that just
occurred.
You have been given some example event sequences (simulation-01.sim,
simulation-02.sim, etc.) along with the expected output for those sequence
of events (simulation-01.res, simulation-02.res, etc.). The output of your
program should be sent to standard output. The correct output for the
simulation-01.sim simulation is:

Your output to standard out should look exactly the same as this output
(i.e. if I do a di and your program is generating the correct output, then
there will be no dierence between the output your program generates and
the above output format). The output is generated by displaying the system
state after each cpu cycle executes. Basically we print out the system time.
Then we show which process (if any) is currently running on the CPU (or
say it is IDLE if no process is running). Then we display the queue of
processes currently on the Ready and Blocked queues. Note that the queues
are displayed in order. The top of the output corresponds to the head of the
queue. Thus when a new process is dispatched, the next one selected should
be the rst process listed from the ready queue in the previous system cycle.
I have given you some template code (p2-start.cpp) to get you started
The code is meant to be run from the command line, thus from a shell or
dos prompt you would do something like:
$ p2-start simulation-01.sim 5
i.e. the program expects two parameters on the command line, which
should be the name of a le that holds the events to be simulated, and the
value to be used for the time slice quantum. If you need to test your program
and can’t gure out how to invoke running it from the command line, you
can change the line in ‘p2-start.cpp’ to explicitly run a particular simulation
le, like this:
runSimulation(“simulation-01.sim”, time_slice_quantum)
7
However, you need to make sure that your program correctly works using
the command line invocation, as shown in `p2-start.cpp`.
I have given some template code to get you started in the le called
p2-start.cpp. I have already provided you with the code needed in order to
correctly parse the command line parameters for the program, and to open
and read in the simulation le events. Your job is to implement the necessary
actions and data structures to handle the simulated events described. The
runSimulation() in ‘p2-start.cpp holds example code and indicates locations
where you need to write your own functions to implement the simulation.
You can use this as a starting point to implement your solution.
Assignment Submission and Requirements
All source les you create for you solution (.c or .cpp/.c++ and .h header
les) should be uploaded to the MyLeo Online submission folder created for
this assignment by the deadline. You should not attach any les besides the
source les containing your C/C++ code. But you should make sure you
attach all needed les you create to your submission, so that I can compile
and run your solution.
You are required to write the program in standard C/C++ programming
language. You should use a relatively recent version of the C/C++ compiler
(C90 C++98 is ne, or the more recent C99 C++11 will also be acceptable),
and/or recent IDE that has an up to date compiler. You should only use
standard C/C++ libraries, do not use Microsoft specic or other third-party
developed external libraries. This page http://en.cppreference.com/w/
provides a good up to date reference of the libraries in the standard C++ and
C languages. You may use the C++ standard template library containers
(like the list and queue items) to implement the ready queue you need. We
will go over a simple implementation of a queue using pointers and/or arrays
in class, if you would like an example implementation in plain C that might
be simpler to use than learning the STL.
