"Performance Measures for Multiprocessor Controllers," 25 pages, October 1982.

In this report, we consider some new performance measures to characterize fault-tolerant multiprocessors used in the control of critical processes. Our performance indices are based on controller response time. By relating this to the needs of the application, we have been able to derive indices that faithfully reflect the performance of the multiprocessor in the context of the application, that permit the design, evaluation and objective comparison of rival computer systems, and that can either be definitively estimated or objectively measured.

"Analysis of the Impact of Error Detection on Computer Performance," 24 pages, October 1982.

Conventionally, reliability analyses either assume that a fault/error is detected immediately following its occurrence, or neglect damages caused by latent errors. Though unrealistic, this assumption has been imposed in order to avoid the difficulty of determining the respective probabilities that a fault induces an error and the error is then detected in a random amount of time after its occurrence.

As a remedy for this problem, in this paper a model is proposed to analyze the impact of error detection on computer performance under moderate assumptions. Error latency -- the time nterval between occurrence of an error and the moment of error detection -- is used to measure the effectiveness of a detection mecha...
