A set of terminal test programs called a benchmark has been derived for the purpose of comparing the two time-sharing computer systems, CP/67 and TSS/360, in order to determine which one can best meet the present operational requirements at the Naval Postgraduate School. Some of the problems encountered in attempting to design the benchmark are discussed, along with the problems of trying to make a valid comparison of the two systems. The results obtained from a series of tests conducted over a period of six months are compiled, analyzed and presented in a manner which shows that CP/67 is significantly superior in most respects to TSS. In addition to the comparison of the two systems, information is presented which spotlights many of the problems which degrade CP/67, and recommendations for the alleviation of those problems are made.
