Response time densities and quantiles are important performance and quality of service metrics, but their analytical derivation is, in general, very expensive. This paper presents a technique for determining approximate response time densities in Markov and semi-Markov stochastic models that requires two orders of magnitude less computation than exact Laplace transform-based techniques. The method computes the first four moments of the desired response time and then makes use of Generalised… CONTINUE READING
