Performance analysis and capacity planning for e-commerce sites poses an interesting problem: how to best characterize the workload of these sites. [...] Key Method First, we introduce 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. A set of useful metrics, analytically derived from the analysis of the CBMG, is presented.Expand
