If a system neither uses deadlock prevention nor a deadlock avoidance strategy then it might enter into a deadlock. Thus, it becomes important to use deadlock detection and recovery policy. A Deadlock detection algorithm, determines whether the system is in deadlock state or not? If yes, then the system uses a deadlock recovery method to …
Resource Allocation graph technique is used for deadlock avoidance when there is a single instance of every resource. In resource allocation graph for
In deadlock avoidance, the operating system is provided with extra information related to all resources any process will require during its lifetime.
Deadlock prevention means to prevent at least one of the necessary conditions from occurring. The methods to prevent the individual conditions are discussed below:
Deadlock is a situation which occurs when a process or thread enters a waiting state because a resource requested is being held by another waiting process,
