Abstract:

The emphasis of this investigation is on the development of a simulation model that will allow an analysis to be performed on the batch-interactive-mix and throughput performance of the IBM 370155 computer, used by the Acquisition Management Information System AMIS users. The basics of hardware and software are discussed, along with some information concerning the System 2000 data base management software package. After the operating characteristics have been discussed, the need for system requirements, definitions and performance measures are presented and the necessary simulation steps are enumerated to show how the simulation model was constructed. The main variables of interest CPU utilization and gain factor are analyzed to determine the throughput performance of the system as the interactive workload is increased and as the number of interactive ports are decreased.
