What are the reasons for process Creation?


Process creation happens due to:

  1. New batch job

    • The operating system is provided with a batch job control stream, usually on tape or disk.

    • When the operating system is prepared to take on new work, it will read the next sequence of job control commands.

  2. Interactive logon

    A user at a terminal logs on to the system.

  3. Created by OS to provide a service

    The Operating system can create a process to perform a function on behalf of a user program, without the user having to wait.

  4. Spawned by existing process

    For purposes of modularity or to exploit parallelism, a user program can dictate the creation of a number of processes.
