The seminal guide to performance analysis, with new information and essential advice The Art of Computer Systems Performance Analysis is the essential guide to practical performance analysis tools and techniques. This easy to follow guide presents a unique blend of measurement, simulation, and modeling methods in a straightforward, problem-oriented fashion, and integrates essential queuing theory with data analysis, experimental design, and the most powerful tools in performance analysis. This updated edition includes new chapters on Time Series Analysis and Long-Range Dependence, over 150 updated examples and cases studies, and a host of special tricks that demonstrate system superiority. Instructor's Materials, including PowerPoint slides, syllabus, and solutions for expanded exercises beyond the end-of-chapter exercises, is available making it ideal for classroom use. Performance testing measures a system's responsiveness and stability under a particular workload, and can serve to investigate, measure, validate, or verify other quality attributes of the system, including scalability, reliability, and resource usage. This book is the seminal work on the topic, providing expert guidance to systems professionals for over twenty-two years. Comprehensive coverage of all aspects of performance measurement makes it a valuable resource for students and professionals alike. Understand technique and metric criteria, and avoid common mistakes Collect, analyze, and present measurement data with the most powerful techniques Provide the maximum amount of information with the minimum number of experiments Determine the number of sizes of components required (capacity planning) Evaluate design alternatives, correctly compare two or more systems, and determine the optimal value of a parameter (system tuning) Analysis in technology using statistics and other methodologies has become one of the most important, in-demand skills in the corporate and enterprise world. While practitioners may create new systems, they are often asked to modify, expand, or document existing systems – many of which have been grown haphazardly. Art of Computer Systems Performance Analysis provides the information, skills, and tools analysts need to tackle any system with confidence.

Tackling the questions that systems designers care about, this book brings queueing theory decisively back to computer science. The book is written with computer scientists and engineers in mind and is full of examples from computer systems, as well as manufacturing and operations research. Fun and readable, the book is highly approachable, even for undergraduates, while still being thoroughly rigorous and also covering a much wider span of topics than many queueing books. Readers benefit from a lively mix of motivation and intuition, with illustrations, examples and more than 300 exercises – all while acquiring the skills needed to model, analyze and design large-scale systems with good performance and low cost. The exercises are an important feature, teaching research-level counterintuitive lessons in the design of computer systems. The goal is to train readers not only to customize existing analyses but also to invent their own.

“To design future networks that are worthy of society’s trust, we must put the ‘discipline’ of computer networking on a much stronger foundation. This book rises above the considerable minutiae of today’s networking technologies to emphasize the long-standing mathematical underpinnings of the field.” –Professor Jennifer Rexford, Department of Computer Science, Princeton University “This book is exactly the one I have been waiting for the last couple of years. Recently, I decided most students were already very familiar with the way the net works but were not being taught the fundamentals–the math. This book contains the knowledge for people who will create and understand future communications systems." –Professor Jon Crowcroft, The Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge The Essential Mathematical Principles Required to Design, Implement, or Evaluate Advanced Computer Networks Students, researchers, and professionals in computer networking require a firm conceptual understanding of its foundations. Mathematical Foundations of Computer Networking provides an intuitive yet rigorous introduction to these essential mathematical principles and techniques. Assuming a basic grasp of calculus, this book offers sufficient detail to serve as the only reference many readers will need. Each concept is described in four ways: intuitively; using appropriate mathematical notation; with a numerical example carefully chosen for its relevance to networking; and with a numerical exercise for the reader. The first part of the text presents basic concepts, and the second part introduces four theories in a progression that has been designed to gradually deepen readers’ understanding. Within each part, chapters are as self-contained as possible. The first part covers probability; statistics; linear algebra; optimization; and signals, systems, and transforms. Topics range from Bayesian networks to hypothesis testing, and eigenvalue computation to Fourier transforms. These preliminary chapters establish a basis for the four theories covered in the second part of the book: queueing theory, game theory, control theory, and information theory. The second part also demonstrates how mathematical concepts can be applied to issues such as contention for limited resources, and the optimization of network responsiveness, stability, and throughput.

Application-level monitoring of continuously operating software systems provides insights into their dynamic behavior, helping to maintain their performance and availability during runtime. Such monitoring may cause a significant runtime overhead to the monitored system, depending on the number and location of used instrumentation probes. In order to improve a system’s instrumentation and to reduce the caused monitoring overhead, it is necessary to know the performance impact of each probe. While many monitoring frameworks are claiming to have minimal impact on the performance, these claims are often not backed up with a detailed performance evaluation determining the actual cost of monitoring. Benchmarks can be used as an effective and affordable way for these evaluations. However, no benchmark specifically targeting the overhead of monitoring itself exists. Furthermore, no established benchmark engineering methodology exists that provides guidelines for the design, execution, and analysis of benchmarks. This thesis introduces a benchmark approach to measure the performance overhead of application-level monitoring frameworks. The core contributions of this approach are 1) a definition of common causes of monitoring overhead, 2) a general benchmark engineering methodology, 3) the MooBench micro-benchmark to measure and quantify causes of monitoring overhead, and 4) detailed performance evaluations of three different application-level monitoring frameworks. Extensive experiments demonstrate the feasibility and practicality of the approach and validate the benchmark results. The developed benchmark is available as open source software and the results of all experiments are available for download to facilitate further validation and replication of the results.
