The design and implementation of the FreeBSD operating system by Marshall Kirk McKusick( Book )

33 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors provide a concise overview of FreeBSD's design and implementation. Then, while explaining key design decisions, they detail the concepts, data structures, and algorithms used in implementing the systems facilities. As a result, readers can use this book as both a practical reference and an in-depth study of a contemporary, portable, open source operating system."--Jacket
Register allocation and data conversion in machine independent code generators by Marshall Kirk McKusick( Book )

9 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation investigates the problems of register allocation and intermediate language design in retargetable code generators. The goal is to develop tools that allow high quality code generators to be constructed rapidly
Performance improvements and functional enhancements in 4.3BSD by Marshall Kirk McKusick( Book )

4 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 4.2 Berkeley Software Distribution of UNIX for the VAX provided many new facilities. This paper highlights the changes to 4.2BSD that appear in 4.3BSD. The changes to the system have consisted of improvements to the performance of the existing facilities, as well as enhancements to the current facilities. Performance improvements in the kernel include cacheing of path name translations, reductions in clock handling and scheduling overhead, and improved throughput of the network. Performance improvements in the libraries and utilities include replacement of linear searches of system databases with indexed lookup, merging of most network services into a single daemon, and conversion of system utilities to use the more efficient facilities available in 4.2BSD. Enhancements in the kernel include the addition of subnets and gateways, increases in many kernel limits, cleanup of the signal and autoconfiguration implementations, and support for windows and system logging. Functional extensions in the libraries and utilities include the addition of an Internet name server, new system management tools, and extensions to dbx to work with Pascal. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of changes made to the system to enhance security
Measuring and improving the performance of 4.2BSD by Samuel J Leffler( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 4.2 Berkeley Software Distribution of UNIX for the VAX has several problems that can severely affect the overall performance of the system. These problems were identified with kernel profiling and system tracing during day to day use. Once potential problem areas had been identified benchmark programs were devised to highlight the bottlenecks. These benchmarks verified that the problems existed and provided a metric against which to validate proposed solutions. This paper examines the performance problems encountered and describes modifications that have been made to the system since the initial distribution. Suggestions for further performance improvements are given

A Fast file system for UNIX by Marshall Kirk McKusick( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A reimplementation of the UNIX file system is described. The reimplementation provides substatially higher throughput rates by using more flexible allocation policies, that allow better locality of reference and that can be adapted to a wide range of peripheral and processor characteristics. The new file system clusters data that is sequentially accessed and provides two block sizes to allow fast access for large files while not wasting large amounts of space for small files. File access rates of up to ten times faster than the traditional UNIX file system are experienced. Long needed enhancements to the user interface are discussed. These include a mechanism to lock files, extensions of the name space across file systems, the ability to use arbitrary length file names, and provisions for efficient adminIstrative control of resource usage
