Distributed system is a collection of multiple processors interconnected by communication networks. Designing a distributed system is more difficult than designing a centralized operating system for a number of reasons. To design a centralized computing system the operating system has access to complete and accurate information about the environment in which it is functioning. In a distributed system the resources are physically separated there is no common clock among the multiple processors delivery of messages is delayed and messages could even be lost. The purpose of this paper is to study the various designing issues of distributed computing and provide an overview for how to implement these issues. The paper also represents the models used by communication network to interconnect the multiple processors and provide a comparative study of different model to prove which model is suitable for distributed system.
