Based on the architecture of the operating system as well as the nature of the software defect. Memory access issues often encountered on Real-Timer Operating Systems [RTOSI may be either very simple or a cryptic puzzle. This paper presents sonic of the memory access issues often noticed on bsj1iipler models of soft Real-Time Operating Systems. Discussed with each class of issue are the typical software defects responsible for the same. Some efficient debugging methods/techniques for such issues have also been explained. Often a Real-Time Operating System [RTOS] depends on virtual memory mechanism to provide private memory regions for tasks. This mechanism of protection would be beneficial as long as memory shared between tasks is within acceptable limits.
