ABSTRACT
<p>A description is given of Sprite, an experimental network operating system under development at the University of California at Berkeley. It is part of a larger research project, SPUR, for the design and construction of a high-performance multiprocessor workstation with special hardware support of Lisp applications. Sprite implements a set of kernel calls that provide sharing, flexibility, and high performance to networked workstations. The discussion covers: the application interface: the basic kernel structure; management of the file name space and file data, virtual memory; and process migration.</p>
