Livro: Performance Evaluation of Complex Systems: Techniques and Tools.
This book presents the tutorial lectures given by leading experts in the area at the IFIP WG 7.3 International Symposium on Computer Modeling, Measurement and Evaluation, Performance 2002, held in Rome, Italy in September 2002.
The survey papers presented are devoted to theoretical and methodological advances in performance and reliability evaluation as well as new perspectives in the major application fields. Modeling and verification issues, solution methods, workload characterization, and benchmarking are addressed from the methodological point of view. Among the applications dealt with are hardware and software architectures, wired and wireless networks, grid environments, Web services, and real-time voice and video processing.
This book is intended to serve as a state-of-the-art survey and reference for students, scientists, and engineers active in the area of performance and reliability evaluation.
