A large class of distributed computing environments is emerging. These systems have a common set of distinguishing characteristics which separate them from single processor systems and many other distributed environments, and which must be considered when a measurement facility is designed for the new environments. The fundamental measurement questions of what to measure and how to measure are both impacted by the distribution, and these impacts occur in a number of ways and at various locations in the distributed systems. This dissertation describes the characteristics of a particular class of distributed computing environments and establishes the impact that the characteristics have on the design of a measurement facility for that class. The design of the measurement facility for a specific system in the class is presented. Author
