Performance Analysis of the Disk Subsystem

  title={Performance Analysis of the Disk Subsystem},
  author={Ozlem Akpinar and Tayfur Altiok},
An important performance measure in client/server systems is the response time, which is defined as the time elapsed between a request and its associated reply. It is composed of service times, where the actual work is done, as well as waiting times for shared resources. Response time in client/server systems is generally limited by how fast data is retrieved from the underlying storage system. The storage system performance is especially limiting in I/O intensive applications such as OLTP… CONTINUE READING
