  journal={Perform. Eval.},
Performance evaluation of distributed systems and service-oriented architectures is often based on stochasticmodels, such as closed queueing networkswhich are commonly solved by theMean Value Analysis (MVA) algorithm. However, the MVA is unable to solve models with hundreds or thousands of users accessing services of multiple classes, a configuration that is often useful to predict the performance of real-world applications. This paper introduces the Method of Moments (MoM), the first exact… CONTINUE READING
