    As more and more economic activity shifts to service industries, meaningful evaluation of their "product" is Abecoming a topic of major concern. The service organization is constantly being evaluated by its customers and it is important for management to understand bases for this evaluation. In the case of the general purpose time-sharing system, there may in fact be several different groups of us... View full abstract»

    The Statistics Gathering Package, SGP, is an information retrieval program supplemented with a variety of summarization techniques. It is used to access a data base of performance and usage information collected by OS, SMF, and LASP. SGP provides information that is needed by installation management, system programmers, consultants and computer users to make decisions. View full abstract»

    The high cost of modern remote communications systems dictates optimum utilization of such facilities. Design and performance evaluation of these systems must not be left to intuitive or heuristic reasoning; instead, formal procedures, both analytic and empirical, must be developed to provide well-utilized, high-performance systems. To this end a large number of techniques1,2 have been developed a... View full abstract»

    The issue of quantitative determination of memory usage and utilization is central to multiprogramming computer systems. In such systems, one tries to improve the system performance by loading a set of independent jobs together into main memory. If the jobs have complementary resource requirements and the system is capable of parallel resource operation, the total time required to complete all job... View full abstract»

    The measurement of computer performance is a topic of resurgent interest both within and outside the computer community. Both the designers and users of computer systems have a continuing interest in those techniques which attempt to quantify the performance of the machines they build and program. Wherever performance measurement is applied in the design-use-evaluate cycle, it is important that th... View full abstract»
