Measurement of system operational statistics

by W. I. Stanley
This paper discusses programming techniques for continuously gathering performance data in a complex multijobbing environment. The program takes advantage of computing system and support program characteristics to count and time data processing activities. The data gathered by the program enables installation managers to measure the effects of modifications to equipment and programming support configurations and to define work loads.
