Amazon FreeRTOS vs Linux: What are the differences?

Developers describe Amazon FreeRTOS as "IoT operating system for microcontrollers". Amazon FreeRTOS (a:FreeRTOS) is an operating system for microcontrollers that makes small, low-power edge devices easy to program, deploy, secure, connect, and manage. On the other hand, Linux is detailed as "A family of free and open source software operating systems based on the Linux kernel". A clone of the operating system Unix, written from scratch by Linus Torvalds with assistance from a loosely-knit team of hackers across the Net. It aims towards POSIX and Single UNIX Specification compliance.

Amazon FreeRTOS and Linux belong to "Operating Systems" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Amazon FreeRTOS are:

  • Based on the FreeRTOS Kernel
  • Local connectivity
  • Cloud connectivity

On the other hand, Linux provides the following key features:

  • Portable(Multiplatform)
  • Multitasking
  • Multi User

Netdata introduces Linux eBPF (Extended Berkeley Packet Filter) monitoring. With this enabled, monitor real-time metrics of Linux kernel functions and actions from the very same monitoring and troubleshooting dashboard used for watching entire systems, or even entire infrastructures.

This collector uses eBPF to monitor system calls inside your operating system’s kernel. For now, the main goal of this plugin is to monitor IO and process management on the host where it is running.

If you have a file (demo.txt) that has 3 columns:

Column-1    Column-2    Column-3
Row-1a      Row-2a      Row-3a         
Row-1b      Row-2b      Row-3b
Row-1c      Row-2c      Row-3c
Row-1d      Row-2d      Row-3d
Row-1e      Row-2e      Row-3e

and you want to only view the first column of the file in your CLI, run the following:

awk {'print $1'} demo.txt

Column-1
Row-1a
Row-1b
Row-1c
Row-1d
Row-1e

If you want to print the second column of demo.txt, just replace $1 with $2
