Abstract

A performance measurement system is operated so as to provide efficient control of multiple measurements at different locations from one central site and to perform all requisite analysis and projections associated with the measurement data. In general, the objectives of the system are to: remotely and locally control the progress and analysis of measurements; remotely initiate, change, monitor and stop hardware and software measurement so as to eliminate the need for remote personnel presence during any given measurement; transmit, receive, query, fetch, analyze and provide reports to and from the remote measurement site, and statistically evaluate and project optimal results on the measurements. The system is schematically shown in the figure.

Performance Measurement System

A performance measurement system is operated so as to provide efficient control of multiple measurements at different locations from one central site and to perform all requisite analysis and projections associated with the measurement data. In general, the objectives of the system are to: remotely and locally control the progress and analysis of measurements; remotely initiate, change, monitor and stop hardware and software measurement so as to eliminate the need for remote personnel presence during any given measurement; transmit, receive, query, fetch, analyze and provide reports to and from the remote measurement site, and statistically evaluate and project optimal results on the measurements. The system is schematically shown in the figure.

During the operation of this system, a user at terminal l0 conversationally and dynamically controls the measurement of a computer system 11 which can be local or remote (anyshere where a telephone linkage 12 can be made). Terminal 10 is connected to a local controlling computer system 13 which provides interactive control of programs or measurement, transmission, receipt, query, analysis, reports and decoding connected with the measurement. The parameters of the measurement are introduced into the system, and during operation of computer system 11, measurement or monitoring data is acquired. The results are then transmitted to the controlling computer system where they are statistically and...
