Constructing a detailed "analytic" model for a real-world computer system is a complicated task, and interpreting results of apphcatmns may be difficult and risky. This tutorial article presents a case study of a modeling project for a specific IBM 360/65J computer system and describes some practical applications of the resulting central server model. A sketch of the underlying theory of such models is included as an aid to interpreting results. The model was used to obtain the relatmnship ofâ€¦Â CONTINUE READING
