Computer file

filefilescomputer files
Virtual system resources include files (concretely file handles), network connections (concretely network sockets), and memory areas.
A computer file is a computer resource for recording data discretely in a computer storage device.

Network socket

socketsocketsInternet socket
Virtual system resources include files (concretely file handles), network connections (concretely network sockets), and memory areas.
Concretely, it is a representation of this endpoint in networking software (protocol stack), such as an entry in a table (listing communication protocol, destination, status, etc.), and is a form of system resource.

Resource management (computing)

resource managementResourceresource-management
Managing resources is referred to as resource management, and includes both preventing resource leaks (not releasing a resource when a process has finished using it) and dealing with resource contention (when multiple processes wish to access a limited resource).Computing Resources are used in cloud computing to provide services through Networks.
In computer programming, resource management refers to techniques for managing resources (components with limited availability).

File descriptor

file handlefile handlesfilehandle
Virtual system resources include files (concretely file handles), network connections (concretely network sockets), and memory areas.
In Unix and related computer operating systems, a file descriptor (FD, less frequently fildes) is an abstract indicator (handle) used to access a file or other input/output resource, such as a pipe or network socket.

Resource leak

Managing resources is referred to as resource management, and includes both preventing resource leaks (not releasing a resource when a process has finished using it) and dealing with resource contention (when multiple processes wish to access a limited resource).Computing Resources are used in cloud computing to provide services through Networks.
In computer science, a resource leak is a particular type of resource consumption by a computer program where the program does not release resources it has acquired.

Fragmentation (computing)

The latter is known as fragmentation, and often severely impacts performance, so contiguous free space is a subcategory of the general resource of storage space.
Analogous phenomena occur for other resources such as processors; see below.

A system monitor is a hardware or software component used to monitor system resources and performance in a computer system.

Thrashing (computer science)

Other resources, generally storage ones such as memory, cannot be throttled without either causing failure (if a process cannot allocate enough memory, it typically cannot run) or severe performance degradation, such as due to thrashing (if a working set does not fit into memory and requires frequent paging, progress will slow significantly).
Thrashing is best known in the context of memory and storage, but analogous phenomena occur for other resources, including:
