Abstract : The research effort explores the process of selecting, implementing, and using a hardware monitor to measure the performance of a university computer system. System performance profiles were obtained to indicate the use of system resources. Recommendations are made to isolate the cause of the central processing unit waiting for the selector channel to complete input/output operations which would improve the overall performance of the computer system.
