Chen continued this work by porting a version of Epoxie to a MIPS-based DECstation running both Ultrix and Mach 3.0 to produce traces from single-process workloads including the user-level X and BSD servers, and the kernel itself [Chen and Bershad 1993; Chen 1994].
The hardware platform consists of a pair of DecStation 5000/200 workstations, each of which was attached to a prototype Osiris ATM network interface board, designed by Bellcore for the Aurora Gigabit testbed [9].
Though its first installation will use DECstation PCs, customers may purchase the machines from other manufacturers, according to Bovay.
