Abstract : A detailed description of the monitor, the supervisory unit that exercises overall control of the JOSS system's operation. The monitor acts as a scheduling, resource-allocating, and synchronizing device, deciding priority and ensuring that all data and hardware necessary for a particular action are simultaneously available. This Memorandum covers the priority queue structure, the hardware components comprising the JOSS computer system and their function in the JOSS environment, and instructions for operations of the JOSS system.
