Usage Descriptions Definitions

     
Auxiliary I/O Operations:   The number of all disk inputs/outputs operations including loading of all necessary programs and database reads/writes/updates.
     
Communication Gets:   The number of information retrievals from a remote computer location. A program may require several gets and puts to/from the remote computer. For example: John is signed on the Lane Co. computer. He calls DCAS to look at a case in Clackamas County. DCAS will call the Clackamas computer retrieving all the necessary case information until all of the information for that case is retrieved. DCAS communicated with the Clackamas computer, asking for information (puts), and then retrieving that information (gets).
     
Communication Puts:   The number of information calls to a remote computer location. A program may make several calls to the remote computer. (See explanation from communication gets.)
     
CPU Seconds:   The number of seconds the computer spent actually processing the information you requested, including interactive and batch processing.
     
Database Gets:   The number of times the computer reads a database record. The number of reads depends on what program you were running. For example: John issues the command DCAS to display a case. The program must go out, read all the various database files, retrieving the necessary data to display the case. Depending on the size of the case, this could be in the hundreds of reads.
     
Database Puts:   The number of times the computer writes a database record. The number of reads depends on what program you were running. (See explanation from database gets.)
     
Database Updates/Deletes:   The number of times the computer updates, deletes, or commits a database record. The number depends on what program you were running. (See explanation from database gets.)
     
Number of Lines Printed:   The total number of lines printed to a spooled file. This is NOT the actual number of lines physically printed on a piece of paper. A spooled file can be printed on a printer, deleted or held.
     
Number of Pages:   The total number of pages in a spooled file. This is NOT the actual number of lines physically printed on a piece of paper. A spooled file can be printed on a printer, deleted or held.
     
Number of Printer Files:   The total number of spooled files. This is NOT the actual number of lines physically printed on a piece of paper. A spooled file can be printed on a printer, deleted or held.
     
Number of Transactions:   The total number of transaction you processed. This should be approximately the number of commands you entered.
     
Total Transaction Time:   The amount of time the computer spent processing each interactive command.
