Abstract : As computer performance analysis gains more and more proponents and practitioners, more and more confusion and inefficiency is introduced into the analysis process. One area is which this is especially true is the selection of application programs for analysis and modification. This paper summarizes the existence of the problem and the brute force approach commonly taken in search of a solution. In addition, a new approach is suggested which greatly simplifies the analyst's approach and therefore his resolution of performance problems. An example of the exception-reporting concept is presented, using actual data from production facilities. (Author)
