Abstract

In some computer architectures, a trace facility is provided for automatically noting, in a storage table, information about selected events relevant to program execution. Data may collect in this table at such a high but random rate that it becomes impractical to develop a table size that guarantees the opportunity to record the contents of each table on an external medium. In addition, the processing environment at the time a table fills is such that a device output request cannot practically be issued. The following describes a mechanism for managing these problems.
