Abstract : The RADCOLS (Rome Air Development Center on Line Simulator) model is a system which simulates a Honeywell Information System 600 or 6000 computer complete with its GCOS (General Comprehensive Operating System) Operating System. The model executes on a HIS 600/6000 System under GCOS and is written in SIMSCRIPT 2, 5. The primary purpose of the RADCOLS model is to provide an experimenter with a tool by which he may reasonably predict the effect of proposed hardware, software and work load changes. Representation of the GCOS multi-dimensional philosophy has been the primary design goal of RADCOLS. The experimenter is permitted to introduce input to the model which portrays a specified work load on the system. Job generation is accomplished within the model via distribution factors submitted as inputs under each (Local Batch, Remote Batch, and TSS) work load category. The model has been designed to generate four specific report types: Facility Utilization, Process Delay, Queu Beliovior, and Task Turnaround.
