Today many real-world activities are being monitored and controlled by some type of micro-processor based system. Emphasis is placed on manufacturing and controlling through the use of computers. The inherent nature of these real-world applications makes them difficult to control and monitor. They must be built meeting strict timing constraints and must be predictable. We need to develop simplistic, reliable, and cost effective methods for building, evaluating, monitoring and controlling these complex systems. These tools should provide the user with system insight. At the New Jersey Institute of Technology Real-Time Computing Laboratory, we are building a system that will provide the aforementioned tools in a complete real-time environment. This paper gives the user a brief overview of the system that is currently under construction and gives a detailed look into the component called Real-TV. Real-TV is a software component that will be used as a monitoring tool to provide users with system insight. Processes and other system statistics, occurring within the simulated predictable real-time software/hardware environment, can be tracked and monitored.
