Write 5 pages thesis on the topic installation and configuration of an operating system. Basic operating system monitoring tools are classified into log-based tools and real-time tools. The significance of monitoring tools is to assist the computer in deciding the system, fixing systems and processes, managing resources in the system and examining systems. Real-time tools measure the present system state and update the performance of the operating system. The tools depend on system calls to extract information concerning performance readings, making it significant to system performance. Changing the real-time tools is very difficult due to the unavailability of the OS source code. The real-time tools mostly perform in UNIX and Windows systems. Process monitor, process explosion, process viewer, performance monitor, and task manager are the real-time tools found in Windows (Morimoto, Lewis & Noel, 2006). UNIX tools comprise process status, XOS view, trees and top tools.
