Abstract:

The Operating Systems Simulation Language OSSL has been developed for the stochastic representation and analysis of the dynamic interactions of the components of a computer system. The components which can be represented individually include hardware components central processing units, memories, channels, devices, etc. as well as software components compilers, loaders, operating system elements, user programs, etc. Particular emphasis has been placed on a meaninfgul syntax relative to computer systems and on modularity for broadening the scope of language use. The modeling technique is based on the philosophy of partitionable computer resource allocation relative to both hardware and software. Author
