The ChorusOS operating system provides two standard configuration profiles. These are useful starting points for defining your own configuration.
The extended profile is an example of a development system and should be viewed as a reference configuration for telecommunications systems. It includes support for networking using remote IPC over Ethernet and an NFS client, using the protected memory model. It allows the development and loading of multi-actor applications. These actors may use any ChorusOS API, provided that the corresponding feature is part of the system configuration.
The basic profile is an example of a small deployment system and defines a realistic configuration while keeping the footprint as small as possible. When using the basic profile, all applications are usually embedded in the system image and launched either at boot time as boot applications, or subsequently from the file system.
