Abstract

A device is described for collecting usage statistics useful in the design of a new generation of high function I/O controllers. These statistics are collected in a fine level of detail in actual customer installation operating environments without appreciable disruption or distortion of those environments. Such statistics are also useful in the fine tuning of existing data processing installations.
