Abstract

An optimization tool is described for use in a realtime programming system (RPS) which is architecture rich in supervisory functions. The RPS system can be thought of as being composed of a large set of system modules (e.g., 500) which are selectively invoked when a supervisory service is requested. Because of the magnitude of the number of modules available in the system, a transient area linkage scheme is frequently utilized. When a nonresident system module is requested, a transient disk Input/Ouput (I/O) operation is issued to fetch the module into a transient area prior to execution. At System Generation (SYSGEN) Time, the application user has a Transiency/Residency module selectivity.
