Abstract : Contained in this report are three major design specifications for the ArchOS decentralized operating system that is being built at CMU as part of the Archons project with partial support from NOSC. Each design specification appears as a separate chapter in Section II of this report. The Client Interface Specification in Chapter 4 of this report describes the functionality of ArchOS as seen by client application programs. In Chapter 5, the ArchOS System Architecture Specification summarizes the structure of ArchOS that supports the ArchOS client interface. Chapter 6 contains the System Design Description of ArchOS. The System Design describes the structure and functionality of major components of ArchOS, such as the ArchOS kernel, the arobject/process management subsystem, the transaction subsystem, the file subsystem, the I/O device subsystem, the time-driven scheduler subsystem, and the monitoring and debugging subsystems.
