Operating Systems with Multi-Core Support Before exploring how different operating systems utilise multi-core processors, we must understand the relationship between the operating system and processors. With processors becoming more and more powerful, software such as the operating system can very easily hold back the performance of the processor. Most applications that are ran spend a significant amount of time within the operating system kernel. This means that without proper support for the processor, the operating system will bottleneck the performance of the computer. For the processor to reach its full potential, the operating system must ensure scalability. Several tools have been implemented within various operating systems to lessen the bottleneck effect. For example, when running an application in Linux the memory allocator within the operating system will use all of the available memory from the core that is being used (the local core). Only until all memory is used within that core will the memory allocator go to another core. This is useful to ensure all applications are running at maximum efficiency and that cores are properly sharing the workload when necessary. When discussing the relationship between modern multi-core processors and operating systems, we must also look at two implementations of a multi-core processor in a computer system – symmetric multi-processing (SMP) and asymmetric multi-processing (AMP). Both of these methods of implementation directly affect how the operating system must interact with the m>GET ANSWER
