Abstract : Complete and accurate computer resource accounting is paramount for effective and efficient management of a computer installation. Computer installation managers must have a fair means of charging customers for computer resources (core storage, central processor time, permanent file space, etc.) used by each computer run. The recording of resource utilization must be an integral part of a computer system. The paper describes the essential information on computer resource utilization which must be recorded by the computer system. The last section of the paper describes the current resource utilization system for the CDC 6700 computer installed at the Naval Weapons Laboratory. (Author)
