The GSS Extract processing load is described by the following equation, which is similar in structure to that described for Sync/Extract Telemetry in section B6.1:
Nominal L_{GE} = ((G/10 words/sec) * (15 instr/word)) / (1.83 SPECint92/MIPS * 10^{6})
where: L_{GE } = GSS Extract load (SPECint92)
G = GSS status rate (bps)
words = GSS status words
The total GSS Conversion load is described by the following equation:
Nominal L_{GC} = ((G/10 words/sec) * (48 instr/word)) / (1.83 SPECint92/MIPS) * 10^{6}
where: L_{GC } = GSS Convert load (SPECint92)
G = GSS status rate (bps)
The GSS Monitor load is described by the following equation:
Nominal L_{GM} = ((G*(0.05)/10 words/sec) / 3 words/rule) / (270 rules/sec/SPECint92)
where: L_{GM } = GSS Monitor load (SPECint92)
G = GSS status rate (bps)
The GSS Display load is described by the following equation:
Nominal L_{GD} = D * ((G*(0.01)/10 words/sec) / (250 meas/sec/SPECint92)
Table B5 presents process loads for various GSS rates.

Figure B12 illustrates the loading allocation for the highest data rate case (G = 6816 bps) listed in Table B5. This case represents a worstcase GSS load, since the GSS Extract and Convert functions would not be accomplished on the 1200 bps local status data stream.
