Abstract

A large computer system may be thought of as a collection of programs and resources, with the programs making requests of the resources. In the system are several processors and at least one I/O controller. Other resources are main storage and the storage protect array. A program may begin by issuing a storage request which can be either a fetch type or a store type. Each request may use either of two registers in the controller, one for each type of request.
