In studying or designing parallel and distributed systems one should have available a robust analytical model that includes the major parameters that determine the system performance. Jackson networks have been very successful in modeling parallel and distributed systems. However, Jackson networks have their limitations. In particular, the product-form solution of Jackson networks assumes steady state and exponential service centers with certain specialized queueing discipline. In this paper… CONTINUE READING
