What Do You Mean? - Revisiting Statistics for Web Response Time Measurements

  title={What Do You Mean? - Revisiting Statistics for Web Response Time Measurements},
  author={David M. Ciemiewicz},
  booktitle={Int. CMG Conference},
Using empirical data from an Internet/WAN distributed Web response time measurement system, this paper explores the relative applicability and usefulness of the geometric mean and geometric standard deviation, and introduces the lognormal distribution for quantifying the response time measurements. These statistics are particularly useful in the areas of Web content performance comparison and SLA monitoring of service providers such as Content Providers, CDNs, ASPs, MSPs, and Web Hosting… Expand
On Benchmarking for Concurrent Runtime Verification
A synthetic benchmarking framework that targets the systematic evaluation of RV tools for message-based concurrent systems and provides a multi-faceted view of measurements that is conducive to a comprehensive assessment of the overhead induced by runtime monitoring. Expand
Statistics for the Performance
This paper is an introduction to statistics from the performance analyst’s perspective and will divide statistics into two basic areas: descriptive statistics and predictive statistics. Expand
Push it to the Limit
When assessing the prototyping of software tools, one often resorts to off-the-shelf systems to acquire empirical evidence. This approach, while valid, has two principal shortcomings. First,Expand
Impact of Customer Traffic and Service Process Outsourcing Levels on E-Retailer Operational Performance
Many service firms deliver services via a mix of internally developed and delivered (i.e., insourced) and externally developed and delivered (i.e., outsourced) service processes. Service processExpand
Case study of multiple trace transform implementations
It is found that MATLAB is still the best choice overall, but Julia proves an interesting emerging choice, and the compute unified device architecture (CUDA) implementation offers the best performance, albeit at a high development cost. Expand
Effective Extensible Programming: Unleashing Julia on GPUs
This work proposes compiler infrastructure to efficiently add support for new hardware or environments to an existing programming language, and significantly lower the cost to implement and maintain the new compiler, and facilitate reuse of existing application code. Expand
High-level GPU programming in Julia
A framework for CUDA GPU programming in the high-level Julia programming language, which compiles Julia source code for GPU execution, and takes care of the necessary low-level interactions using modern code generation techniques to avoid run-time overhead. Expand
