Welcome to Process Control, the second experiment in the Systems and Software Virtual Lab. Process control refers to creating, killing, changing priorities of processes on a machine. The goal of this experiment is to give teach basic process control on a Linux machine. The theory section provides a brief overview of commands needed to do process control.
The experimental platform for this experiment is a command line interface which mimics the terminal of a linux machine. The command line interface supports few basic set of commands to enable the user learn process control basics. The experiment contains the command line interface and an instructor section (in green background) below it. The instructor section guides the user to peform the experiment which is a series of tasks.
Proceed to the theory section to get an overview of the commands and then move to the experiment section to get some hands-on experience and finish the experiment tasks. After you are done with the experiment go to the quiz section to test your understanding.
