We cover the following design dimensions in this chapter:

Iterative versus concurrent versus reactive servers

Processes versus threads

Process/thread spawning strategies

User versus kernel versus hybrid threading models

Time-shared versus real-time scheduling classes

Task- versus message-based architectures

5.1 Iterative, Concurrent, and Reactive Servers

Servers can be categorized as either iterative, ...
