Performance Modeling and Design of Computer Systems: Queueing Theory in Action

By Mor Harchol-Balter

Desktops layout is filled with conundrums:

•Given a decision among a unmarried computing device with velocity s, or n machines each one with velocity s/n, which should still we choose?

•If either the coming cost and repair expense double, will the suggest reaction time remain the same?

•Should structures particularly target to stability load, or is that this a handy delusion?
•If a scheduling coverage favors one set of jobs, does it unavoidably harm another jobs, or are those "conservation legislation" being misinterpreted?

•Do grasping, shortest-delay, routing ideas make feel in a server farm, or is what is stable for the person disastrous for the approach as a whole?

•How do excessive task measurement variability and heavy-tailed workloads impact the alternative of a scheduling policy?

•How may still one alternate off power and hold up in designing a working laptop or computer system?

•If 12 servers are had to meet hold up promises while the coming expense is nine jobs/sec, do we want 12,000 servers whilst the arriving price is 9,000 jobs/sec?

Tackling the questions that structures designers care approximately, this booklet brings queueing concept decisively again to laptop technological know-how. The ebook is written with desktop scientists and engineers in brain and is stuffed with examples from desktops, in addition to production and operations study. enjoyable and readable, the e-book is extremely approachable, even for undergraduates, whereas nonetheless being completely rigorous and in addition overlaying a much broader span of subject matters than many queueing books. Readers take advantage of a full of life mixture of motivation and instinct, with illustrations, examples, and greater than three hundred routines - all whereas buying the abilities had to version, learn, and layout large-scale structures with strong functionality and occasional fee. The routines are an incredible function, educating research-level counterintuitive classes within the layout of desktops. The target is to coach readers not just to customise current analyses but additionally to invent their very own.
