Abstract : The monitor is that part of the JOSS system program that acts as the supervisory unit of the JOSS machine. A major function of the monitor is the gathering of data for revenue accounting and for producing performance measures of the system and its users. The present memorandum includes detailed descriptions of the data gathering processes for accounting and performance measurement, together with samples of the several reports produced from these data. A future memorandum will deal in depth with JOSS system and user performance as measured by the reporting processes described here.
