Process Creation and Child Process in Operating System


Process Creation and Child Process in Operating System

Operating system is also responsible for creating the processes.

In this lecture we have discussed about how a child process get created and what is the all life cycle of child process.

So first of all it is important to know that a process may or may not create a child process.
If a process create a child process or more than one child processes.

Those child processes will use the resources or ask for the resources to the parent process and parent process will provide the resource to child process.

Parent process also have the authority to limit the usage of resources by child process or the child may ask for all the resources which a parent have.

A child have also authority to create further more childs.

Parent and child process can communicate with each other as well because they share the same memory space.
