Abstract

A technique is described whereby a software utility program is used as a tool for servicing the IBM Series/1 Real-time Programming System (RPS). The program, called the Storage Allocation Utility (SAU), maintains an in-storage table of currently allocated storage for a static partition's unprotected, protected, instruction or 2K-byte aligned dynamic storage. Memory allocation for the SAU trace table is obtained via a GETPOOL macro for any available address space.
