Abstract An array of measuring tools devised to aid in the implementation of a prototype computer utility is discussed. These tools include special hardware clocks and data channels, general purpose programmed probing and recording tools, and specialized measurement facilities. Some particular measurements of interest in a system which combines demand paging with multiprogamming are described in detail. Where appropriate, insight into effectiveness (or lack thereof) of individual tools is provided.
