    $\begingroup$ Hey Dasun. This isn't a good question for cs.stackexchange because this site is mainly for algorithmic and theoretical questions, and your question seems specific to Linux. I also am not entirely sure there is enough detail to understand what you are asking, but I think you could try unix.stackexchange.com $\endgroup$ – 6005 Mar 2 '20 at 4:57

    $\begingroup$ I suspect it would be on-topic here if it wasn't limited to Linux. $\endgroup$ – D.W. Mar 2 '20 at 8:06
  • $\begingroup$ @D.W., it is a question on how a specific program works... $\endgroup$ – vonbrand Mar 3 '20 at 14:34
  • $\begingroup$ You'd have to check how the code of the exact Linux verion you have in mind does it. There is no "general formula" for anything like this. $\endgroup$ – vonbrand Mar 4 '20 at 0:28
