Abstract:

This report describes the design, theory of operation, and the testing of a computer program that models and optimizes satellite computer graphics systems. The optimization program answers the following interrelated questions. Given a fixed amount of money, how should it be allocated among the system components in order to minimize response time. How should the labor be divided between the host and satellite. Data was collected on several real applications and compared to the predicted optimal results. In support of the division of labor problem an initial effort into a device independent language is described. Author
