CS8603 DS Short answers, Question Bank for DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS Engineering are listed down for students to make perfect utilization and score maximum marks with our study materials.


1.What is meant distributed system?
1. We define a distributed system as a collection of autonomous computers linked by a
network, with software designed to produce an integrated computing facility.
2. A system in which hardware or software components located at networked computers
communicate and coordinate their actions only by message passing.
3. A collection of two or more independent computers which coordinate their processing
through the exchange of synchronous or asynchronous message passing.
4. A collection of independent computers that appear to the users of the system as a
single computers.

2. What are the significance of distributed system?
a. Concurrency of computers.
b. No global clock.
c. Independent failures.

3. Why we do you need distributed system?
a. Functional distribution: Computers have different functional capabilities (i.e.,
sharing of resources with specific functionalities).
b. Load distribution/balancing: Assign tasks to processors such that the overall
system performance is optimized.
c. Replication of processing power: Independent processors working on the same
d. Distributed system consisting of collections of microcomputers may have
processing powers that no supercomputer will ever achieve.
e. Physical separation: Systems that rely on the fact that computers are physically
separated (e.g., to satisfy reliability requirements).
f. Economics: Collections of microprocessors offer a better price/performance ratio
than large mainframes.mainframes:10 times faster, 1000 times as expensive.

4.Examples of distributed system?
a. Internet
b. Intranet
c. Mobile and ubiquitous computing.

5. What is meant by location aware computing?
Mobile computing is the performance of computing tasks while the users are on the move
and away from their residence intranet but still provided with access to resources via the devices
they carry with them. They can continue to access the intranet, they can continue to access
resources in their home intranet, and there is increasing provision for users to utilize resources
such as printers that are conveniently nearby as they move around. This is known as location
aware computing.

6. What are the two type of resource sharing?
a. Hardware sharing: Printers. plotters and large disks and other peripherals are shared
to reduce costs.
b. Data sharing is important in many applications:
1. Software developers working in a team need to access each other’s code and
share the same development tools.
