QoS Issues in Web Services
  • D. Menascé
  • Computer Science
    IEEE Internet Comput.
  • 1 November 2002
TLDR
QoS measures can include the maximum throughput or a function that describes how throughput varies with load intensity, which can be measured in terms of arrival rates (such as requests per second) or number of concurrent requests.
Capacity Planning for Web Services: Metrics, Models, and Methods
TLDR
Capacity Planning for Web Services: Metrics, Models, and Methods introduces quantitative performance predictive models for every major Web scenario, showing precisely how to identify and address both potential and actual performance problems.
A methodology for workload characterization of E-commerce sites
TLDR
This paper introduces a state transition graph called Customer Behavior Model Graph (CBMG), that is used to describe the behavior of groups of customers who exhibit similar navigational patterns, and proposes a clustering algorithm to characterize workloads of e-commerce sites in terms of CBMGs.
The FOCUS Collaboration
TLDR
This paper proposes the existence of bound (mass below thresh-old for strong decay) multiquark states including QQqq states and the H di-hyperon based on calculations using the bag model.
Performance by Design - Computer Capacity Planning By Example
TLDR
Practical systems modeling: learning exactly how to map real-life systems to accurate performance models, and use those models to make better decisions--both up front and throughout the entire system lifecycle.
Capacity Planning and Performance Modeling: From Mainframes to Client-Server Systems
This example-driven, easy-to-read exploration of capacity planning of computer systems is designed to be accessible and relevant both to practising professionals and those with little mathematical
TPC-W: A Benchmark for E-Commerce
  • D. Menascé
  • Computer Science
    IEEE Internet Comput.
  • 1 May 2002
TLDR
TPC benchmark W, designed by the Transaction Processing Performance Council, is explored, which explores TPC-W's main features, advantages, and limitations.
Resource Allocation for Autonomic Data Centers using Analytic Performance Models
TLDR
This paper presents a solution based on the use of analytic queuing network models combined with combinatorial search techniques to dynamically redeploy servers among the various AEs in order to optimize some global utility function.
Scaling for E-Business: Technologies, Models, Performance, and Capacity Planning
From the Publisher: Foreword by Jim Gray Microsoft Research and 1998 ACM Turing Award Recipient The Complete Guide to Techniques and Models to Evaluate and Plan E-Business Sites! Avoid losing
Capacity Planning for Web Performance: Metrics, Models, and Methods
TLDR
This book discusses how to Characterize the Workload for an Intranet, and a Methodology for Capacity Planning in C/S Environments, using System-Level Performance Models.
