Abstract: A method and an apparatus for configuring multiple absolute address spaces are disclosed which simultaneously operate a plurality of virtual machines (VMs) respectively having operating systems on a single real computer by allocating a plurality of logical address spaces to an absolute address space. A different absolute address space is allocated to each of the VMs, whereby the respective VMs can access a main storage with a designated address without adding a constant to the designated address.
Abstract: A virtual machine system in which a plurality of operating systems (OS's) can run on one computer including a physical main storage (physical MS), and at least one physical extended storage (physical ES), each operating system (OS) of the OS's having a virtual MS on the physical MS and at least one virtual ES on the at least one physical ES.
Abstract: A method and a system in a virtual machine system controlling a simultaneous run of one or more operating systems (OS's) by use of a virtual machine control program on a real machine including a storage area for each virtual processor constituting the virtual machine for saving a status of each virtual processor, for storing an active flag indicating whether or not the virtual processor is in the active state, and for storing a running priority specified for each virtual processor by the control program wherein when an OS being running issues an instruction to set the processor to the wait state, the instruction is directly executed, a state of the virtual processor being running is stored in the status save area, a processor is selected from processors for which the nonactive state is set, a virtual processor is selected according to the running priority from a group of virtual processors not in the wait state nor in the active state, and a content of the status save area of the virtual processor is set to t
Abstract: An I/O control system in a virtual machine system has at least one virtual machine (VM) running under control of a virtual machine control program (VMCP) and has a direct I/O execution mode in which an I/O interruption to the I/O device dedicated by the running VM is directly executed without intervention of the VMCP and an indirect I/O execution mode in which the I/O interruption is simulated. The I/O control system comprises identification portion for identifying the I/O device requesting the switching to the direct I/O execution mode, judge portion for judging a mode switching condition and mode selection portion for selecting one of the two modes.
Abstract: A self-contained closed-circuit oxygen-generating breathing appratus is provided with a partition wall disposed in such a manner as to oppose at least the lower portion of the inner surface of a breathing bag. The partition wall partitions the central portion and peripheral portion of the interior of the breathing bag along the inner surface of the breathing bag, and the space or gap between the partition wall and the inner surface of the breathing bag acts as a passage for oxygen-enriched gas discharged from the outlet of a canister of an oxygen-generating agent into the interior of the breathing bag. The oxygen-enriched gas can flow through the passage while kept in good contact with the inner surface of the breathing bag, and thus can be cooled to a temperature suitable for inhalation by the user.
Abstract: In a multipulse pitch speech excitation generator, pulses which may everlap the next frame are eliminated by a subtraction process (CC-HH), and pulses from the next frame which may overlap the present frame are eliminated by selection.
Abstract: An echo controller comprises a parallel circuit of an echo suppressor and a self-adaptive echo canceller near an echo path of a long-distance telephone network. The echo controller further comprises a mode switch responsive to levels of a received signal, an unprocessed signal, and an output signal of the echo canceller and operable during absence of double talk for suspending operation of the echo canceller and putting instead the echo suppressor into operation only when characteristics of the echo path and operation of the echo canceller are objectionable.
