The optimization of tlme-shared system performance requires the description of the stochastic processes governing the user inputs and the program activity. This paper provides a statistical description of the user input process in the SDC-ARPA generalpurpose Time.Sharing System (TSS). The input process is assumed to be stationary, and to be defined by the… CONTINUE READING
