A family of monitoring facilities is proposed which are used in combination, e.g. a breakpoint monitor used for debugging purposes, a mailbox monitor for analysis of synchronization traffic, and a bus monitor for measurements of bus load. These tools are used in multi-monitor mode, for which both a common programming-language interface and a user interface are provided. Design concepts are pres
