EXTERNAL PRACTICAL QUIZ PAPER BRANCH : CS YEAR : IV SEM : VII-A SUBJECT: DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS SUB. CODE. ECS-701 TOTAL MARKS: 10 TIME: 15 MIN DATE: ROLL NO. ………………………… (1) A distributed system is (a) A parallel system with shared memory; (b) A collection of independent computers that appears to its users as a single coherent system. (c) A system that has physically distributed memory and a logically shared memory; (d) A system in which each processor must have the same architecture. (2) In distributed systems, there is no global clock because (a) There is no need to have it for distributed applications; (b) It is too easy to accurately synchronize all the local clocks in DS; (c) It is a direct consequence of the fact that the only communication is message passing through a network; (d) None of the above. (3) Network operating system (a) Is used for managing multiprocessors and homogeneous multicomputer; (b) Is used mainly to provide single system image of a distributed system; (c) Is used for heterogeneous multicomputer systems; (d) Must have middleware to share resources across the networked computer system. (4) Location transparency (a) Allows the movement of resources and clients within a system without affecting the operations of users or programs; (b) Enables local and remote resources to be accessed using identical operations; (c) Hides whether a resource is in memory or on disk; (d) Enables resources to be accessed without knowledge of their location.

(c) Timing plays a crucial role. (c) A sender is blocked until its message is stored in a local buffer at receiving host. . (6) In transient communication. (d) None of the above. (a) The parameters can be passed by reference and pointer values. (c) Adding one element to a set is not an idempotent operation. or to the receiver. (9) In making remote procedure call (RPC). (b) The parameters can only be passed by value. (c) The parameters can be any objects. (a) Multiple threads in a process may share the same address space. (b) A message is stored by communication system only as long as the sending and receiving applications are executing. (d) A message that has been submitted for transmission is stored by the communication system as long as it takes to deliver it to the receiver. all the threads in the same process must also be blocked. (a) A sender continues immediately after it has submitted its message for transmission. (b) A complete independent address space needs to be allocated. (7) In synchronous communication. (8) Regarding to idempotent operation. The two successive messages may have a temporal relationship such as those in video and audio streams in multimedia applications. (a) Appending data to a file is an idempotent operation. (b) The sender is blocked until its message is stored in a local buffer at receiving host. (d) The parameters can only be object references. (a) A message being transmitted is stored by the communication system as long as it takes to deliver it to the receiver. (d) None of the above. (b) Adding an non-zero number to a bank account is not an idempotent operation. (d) None of the above.(5) Regarding to a thread. (c) When it (thread) is blocked.

SIGNATURE EXT. SIGNATURE . (d) Only local objects can be used as parameters. INT.(10) In making remote method invocation (RMI). (a) The parameters can only be passed by value. (c) Only remote objects can be used as parameters. (b) The parameters can be object references.
