Control Overhead?A Performance Metric for Evaluating Control-Unit Designs
April 1980 (vol. 29 no. 4)
pp. 300-308
J.H. Jenkins, Lawrence Livermore Laboratory, University of California
The basic goal in the design of computer control units is the efficient, high-speed allocation, orchestration, and synchronization of the computer resources. The key concept to meeting the above requirements is the continual optimization of the control structure during the design process. This paper defines an approach to control optimization which is independent of the particular control structure.
Index Terms:
sensitivity analysis, Control overhead, hardware monitoring, minicomputer, performance evaluation, performance optimization
