Managing the Growth and Impact of Virtual Machines and Memory – Part VI

Robert Davis Robert Davis Profile: Robert Davis

Though a process virtual machine can be considered an application-orientated system virtual machine; process virtual machine uniqueness resides in the provisioning of “a platform-independent programming environment that abstracts away details of the underlying hardware or operating system, and allows a program to execute in the same way on any platform.” Moreover, a process virtual machine executes as a normal application inside operating systems and only supports a single process. It is created when a process is started and dismantled when the process has concluded. At this configuration level, appropriate utilization of command services is a practical method for controlling a process virtual machine.
