Hi Rich - I edited your list and will take the 34 manuals I kept in
the list, to be scanned. Basically the Prime Information-related
manuals, plus the "handbook" manuals and a couple of others I haven't scanned before.
Or, Dennis, if you want them and have time to scan them, let me know
and I'll pay for shipping to your place.
I am clearing out the storage room and disposing of lots of manuals
that I've collected over the years
let me know if you'd like any (yours for the cost of shipping)
thanks, Rich

Someone else has offered to scan the manuals and make the PDFs available. Thanks Ray, much appreciated! -Jim
Jim, I am looking for documentation on MONITOR.PROGRAM. Were the Prime manuals successfully scanned into PDF's and are they available for download?
Thanks
Ray
I thought pbhist was older, and priman was newer. The priman manual is
in the stuff you scanned. I appear to have PBHIST for revs 15-19,
including source for 18 and 19. I don't know if it's complete enough to build -- too many years since I fiddled. The doco says you assign the pbhist device, run the init tool to select users and segments to
monitor, then run the target program.
I vaguely remember a monitor program, that was the precursor to pbhist.
What it did was, you patched Primos (the OS) and then ran a program (monitor) to activate and collect program counter statistics. Then it
would dump out where a program was spending all its time. IIRC, it was replaced by pbhist, which was also a Prime-analyst type of tool that was never released and therefore never documented in official Prime manuals.

Someone else has offered to scan the manuals and make the PDFs available. Thanks Ray, much appreciated! -Jim
Jim, I am looking for documentation on MONITOR.PROGRAM. Were the Prime manuals successfully scanned into PDF's and are they available for download?
Thanks
Ray
Dennis and I have both scanned lots of Prime manuals. Dennis is hosting them here:
http://yagi.h-net.msu.edu/prime_manuals
The ones I scanned are searchable (Dennis' may be too - I dunno) and here:
http://yagi.h-net.msu.edu/prime_manuals/prirun_scans
I vaguely remember a monitor program, that was the precursor to pbhist. What it did was, you patched Primos (the OS) and then ran a program (monitor) to activate and collect program counter statistics. Then it would dump out where a program was
The way both of these worked was to patch the clock process, which ran 330x per second (or 500x per second on later models, probably other values too). The clock process would look at PCBB, the process control block for process B, which is theprevious process running before process A (the current process), which would be the clock process. By looking at the program counter stored when the process exchange to the clock process occurred, the clock process could record the previous process's
There was a granularity option on this, because the block of memory where the stats were recorded had a fixed size. So you could either record program counters over a larger program with less granularity, or for smaller programs with finer granularity,ie, the actual program counter would have the low-order right shifted off and the rest would be used to increment a counter in the special block of RAM.
I can't remember if after monitoring stopped, it just dumped out PC ranges and counts, or if it was more sophisticated and could read a load map and dump out actual program entry names. I also don't remember if it worked for multi-segment V-mode. Isort of doubt it. Most V-mode programs would have only had 1 code segment anyway, usually segment '4001 (octal), and I'm guessing you just told monitor which segment it was supposed to monitor. Or maybe you told it "monitor segments '4001-'4010", and
I don't have the monitor program myself. I doubt I have a copy of pbhist, the follow-on, either. And none of this would have worked with EPF runfiles created by the Bind EPF loader (came after SEG V-mode runfiles) because in an EPF, the segmentnumbers were not chosen until Primos mapped and executed the program. Ie, you couldn't activate pbhist beforehand, because you couldn't know or tell it what code segments to monitor.
Jim
I zipped up the files for PBHIST 19. I'm sure anything that's not
source or doco here is hosed, and the files haven't had their high bits stripped off, so they'll be hard to read on modern systems. It'd need updates for any later release.
