Process Synchronization

In this topic, you will learn about, Process Synchronization.

Process Synchronization: A cooperating process is one that can affect or be affected by the other processes executing in the system. Cooperating processes may either directly share a logical address space or be allowed to share data through files. Concurrent access to shared data may result in data inconsistency.

Therefore, there must be a mechanism to ensure the orderly execution of a cooperating process that shares a logical address space, so that data consistency is maintained.
