I am trying to understand bounded waiting and i have a question.

The definition is as follows:

Bounded waiting - There exists a bound, or limit, on the number of times that other processes are allowed to enter their critical sections after a process has made a request to enter its critical section and before that request is granted.

Does this mean after process 2 has made a request to enter its own critical section or the critical section of process 1?

    $\begingroup$ Each process has its own critical section that only it enters. $\endgroup$ – Wandering Logic Mar 26 '19 at 14:09
