Abstract : This thesis investigates the measurement and analysis of complex computer systems at the levels of hardware architecture and operating system kernel design. Both these levels provide the user with a set of instructions - the machine instructions and the operating system kernel functions. The authors viewpoint is always that of the designers attempting to study the usage of these abstract instructions by measuring the behavior of actual programs. He take the same approach for the study of the effects of multiprocessing at these levels.
