Abstract

The Communications Statistical Network Analysis Program (CSNAP) is a program that controls the logging, retrieval, formatting, and output of statistical data for a computer system communications network. CSNAP is a general-purpose error analysis program where operational performance is viewed in terms of error percent (error data/all data) X 100. Only communications data, free of device or subsystem dependencies, is analyzed. The CSNAP program is an improvement over other state-of-the-art offerings, DEMF (Display Exception Monitoring Facility) or FERS (Facility Error Analysis Recognition System), that give a count of errors only and, also, include unique device dependencies.
