This paper focuses on the application of the NBS Network Measurement Instrument (NMI) to synchronous data communication. The suitability of the underlying Stimulus - Acknowledgement - Response (SAR) model to support the implementation of this methodology permitting quantitative evaluation of interactive teleprocessing service delivered to the user is described. The logic necessary to interpret SAR components and boundaries depends on character time sequence for asynchronous data communications… CONTINUE READING
