Consider the following statements with respect to user-level threads and kernel supported threads
i. context switch is faster with kernel-supported threads ii. for user-level threads, a system call can block the entire process iii. Kernel supported threads can be scheduled independently iv. User level threads are transparent to the kernel
Which of the above statements are true?
(A) (ii), (iii) and (iv) only
(B) (ii) and (iii) only
(C) (i) and (iii) only
(D) (i) and (ii) only
|User level thread||Kernel level thread|
|User thread are implemented by users.||kernel threads are implemented by OS.|
|OS doesn’t recognized user level threads.||Kernel threads are recognized by OS.|
|Implementation of User threads is easy.||Implementation of Kernel thread is complicated.|
|Context switch time is less.||Context switch time is more.|
|Context switch requires no hardware support.||Hardware support is needed.|
|If one user level thread perform blocking operation then entire process will be blocked.||If one kernel thread perform blocking operation then another thread can continue execution.|
|Example : Java thread, POSIX threads.||Example : Window Solaris.|
