In this post, we will understand the difference between spooling and buffering concepts in operating system −
It overlaps the input/output of a specific job with the execution of another job.
It is more efficient in comparison to buffering.
Buffering is less efficient than spooling.
It can be expanded as ‘Simultaneous peripheral operation online’.
Spooling considers the disk as a huge spool.
It overlaps the input/output of a specific job with the execution of the same job.
It is a limited area in the main memory.
It doesn’t have any expansion.
It is less efficient in comparison to spooling.
