This report has documented the exploratory research that has been conducted for the development of an ANGYQ-21V hardware monitor. A description has been provided of the concept of monitoring, the users involved with monitoring and the monitoring systems that are already in existence. The objective was to put the development of the hybrid monitor into its proper perspective. The ANGYQ-21V is described in detail, as well as its interfaces to the monitor. The measurement set considered to be a baseline for performance monitoring is documented in detail as well as the locations of its requisite probe-points. The major contribution towards the hardware monitor design can be found in the break-up of measurements into three stages the vector generator, the programmable patchboard and the monitor microprocessor. The eventual hardware specification of those devices awaits the decisions that have to be made concerning the technology involved. Specifications for the software involved have been documented. All of the technical and softwareorganizational techniques presented in the report are within the state-of-the-art. As a result, a microprocessor based performance monitor possessing an extraordinary degree of applicability to all potential users is eminently achievable.
