In this paper a theoretical model is developed to compare different distributed platforms on their performance in computational problems. In order to compare different platforms in a heterogeneous environment on the same basis, the use of tasklists in XML is introduced. In this paper some initial results of the performance and overhead of JavaSpaces are… (More)
In the ever increasing world of distributed systems, different middleware implementations can be compared qualitatively or quantitatively. Existing evaluation techniques are often not satisfying. We apply design of experiments (DoE) to evaluate and model the performance of JavaSpaces, a tuple spaces implementation for distributing tasks through a virtual… (More)
This contribution is an attempt to model the overhead of distributed systems using appropriate statistical techniques. The communication and platform dependent overhead of different distributed systems are estimated by comparing experimental and model-based data.
This paper discusses research results on the performance characterisation of JavaSpaces. Whereas Design of Experiments provides a technique to obtain response surface models of second order with as few experiments as possible, the construction of higher order models makes more precise predictions possible. Analysis of Variance is iteratively used in… (More)
