Operating Systems Project: Kernel Optimization
Operating Systems Project: Kernel Optimization
An attempt of achieving a Kernel optimaization using Ubuntu 16..04.1 LTS, Phoronix Test Suite and different value changes and tests for an internal Kernel variable: the runtime value.

Kernel Optimization: Modifying Multiple Tasks Related Variables
Kernel Optimization: Modifying Multiple Tasks Related Variables
This document talks about how we tried to do a benchmark using the aiostress test on ubuntu desktop 16.04, the things we found useful and the problems we encountered.

Running Realtime Scheduling Analysis
Running Realtime Scheduling Analysis
The Linux kernel controls the way tasks (or processes) are managed in the running system. The task scheduler, sometimes called process scheduler, is the part of the kernel that decides which task to run next. In this project its analyzed the behavior of scheduler by changing a default value from the runtime scheduling. The default value is 950000µs, or 0.95 seconds for the sched\_rt\_runtime\_us or scheduler realtime running variable. Meaning that 5% of the CPU time is reserved for processes that don't run under a real-time or deadline scheduling policy. This value in this file specifies how much of the "period" time can be used by all real-time and deadline scheduled processes on the system. The AIO-Stress which shows the obtained results in the different tests is an a-synchronous I/O benchmark created by SuSE which is is a German Linux distribution provider and business unit of Novell, Inc.

Effects of Climate Change on Canadian Forest Fires
Effects of Climate Change on Canadian Forest Fires
This study aimed to determine the effects of climate change on forest fire trends in Canada by measuring correlations between weather conditions and the frequency and size of forest fires. Upon identifying the correlations, a model was created to understand future forest fire trends. The purpose of this study was to prevent the increasing trend of forest fires and devise solutions to reduce their damages. The data obtained from the Canadian National Fire Database underwent a linear regression and a machine learning algorithm to respectively predict and correlate weather conditions with future forest fire trends. It was concluded that temperature and wind speed experienced a positive correlation with forest fire frequency and size and precipitation experienced a negative correlation. To reduce the harmful effects of forest fires, cloud seeding can be used to create more precipitation and wind farms can be built to lower wind speed and attract lightning. However, more research and stricter policies directly targeting climate change are necessary for long term stability or decrease in forest fire trends.

Analysis Of Using Social Network On Higher Education
Analysis Of Using Social Network On Higher Education
The Internet has become the broadest area in which to exchange information and communicate.Some use this function in a positive way, whilst others do so negatively. With the growth of the Internet, social networks have also grown. Social networks are used in different fields and for different proposes. They are used in higher education to enhance training and collaborative learning and exchange knowledge in an interaction environment. This paper aims at finding the 10 best universities by measuring the use of social networks in education.Universities are selected for this experiment from the Academic Influence Ranking website for the domain of computer science overall (type A) (for more information about the selected universities please visit this link: http://pubstat.org/).

Operative Systems Midterm Project
Operative Systems Midterm Project
In this paper, we measure the memory performance throughout the Phoronix test "RAMspeed SMP". We decide to test this specific benchmark because we know how important is the memory for the system performance. This document shows how much the memory performance could change if we modify some variables in the linux kernel.
