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.

"Large-scale enterprise, cloud, and virtualized computing systems have introduced serious performance challenges. Now, internationally renowned performance expert Brendan Gregg has brought together proven methodologies, tools, and metrics for analyzing and tuning even the most complex environments. Systems Performance: Enterprise and the Cloud focuses on Linux® and Unix® performance, while illuminating performance issues that are relevant to all operating systems. You'll gain deep insight into how systems work and perform, and learn methodologies for analyzing and improving system and application performance. Gregg presents examples from bare-metal systems and virtualized cloud tenants running Linux-based Ubuntu®, Fedora®, CentOS, and the illumos-based Joyent® SmartOSTM and OmniTI OmniOS®. He systematically covers modern systems performance, including the "traditional" analysis of CPUs, memory, disks, and networks, and new areas including cloud computing and dynamic tracing. This book also helps you identify and fix the "unknown unknowns" of complex performance: bottlenecks that emerge from elements and interactions you were not aware of. The text concludes with a detailed case study, showing how a real cloud customer issue was analyzed from start to finish."--Back cover.

Statistical Computer Performance Evaluation contains the proceedings of a Conference on Statistical Computer Performance Evaluation held at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, on November 22-23, 1971, under the auspices of the Division of Applied Mathematics and the Center for Computer and Information Sciences. The papers review the application of quantitative, and particularly statistical, methods to the study of computer performance. Comprised of 19 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the state of the art of computer system evaluation and some quantitative methods (analytical, simulation, and empirical methods) that are applicable to the problem. A utility theoretic approach to evaluation of a time-sharing system is then described, followed by a discussion on the results of a multi-factor paging experiment. Subsequent chapters focus on statistical quantification of instruction and operand traces; measurement and improvement of program behavior under paging systems; free-storage algorithms; and probabilistic models for predicting software reliability. This monograph will be of interest to practitioners in the fields ofcomputer science and applied mathematics.

“If this book had been available to’s contractors, and they read and followed its life cycle performance processes, there would not have been the enormous problems apparent in that application. In my 40+ years of experience in building leading-edge products, poor performance is the single most frequent cause of the failure or cancellation of software-intensive projects. This book provides techniques and skills necessary to implement performance engineering at the beginning of a project and manage it throughout the product’s life cycle. I cannot recommend it highly enough.” – Don Shafer, CSDP, Technical Fellow, Athens Group, LLC Poor performance is a frequent cause of software project failure. Performance engineering can be extremely challenging. In Foundations of Software and System Performance Engineering, leading software performance expert Dr. André Bondi helps you create effective performance requirements up front, and then architect, develop, test, and deliver systems that meet them. Drawing on many years of experience at Siemens, AT&T Labs, Bell Laboratories, and two startups, Bondi offers practical guidance for every software stakeholder and development team participant. He shows you how to define and use metrics; plan for diverse workloads; evaluate scalability, capacity, and responsiveness; and test both individual components and entire systems. Throughout, Bondi helps you link performance engineering with everything else you do in the software life cycle, so you can achieve the right performance–now and in the future–at lower cost and with less pain. This guide will help you • Mitigate the business and engineering risk associated with poor system performance • Specify system performance requirements in business and engineering terms • Identify metrics for comparing performance requirements with actual performance • Verify the accuracy of measurements • Use simple mathematical models to make predictions, plan performance tests, and anticipate the impact of changes to the system or the load placed upon it • Avoid common performance and scalability mistakes • Clarify business and engineering needs to be satisfied by given levels of throughput and response time • Incorporate performance engineering into agile processes • Help stakeholders of a system make better performance-related decisions • Manage stakeholders’ expectations about system performance throughout the software life cycle, and deliver a software product with quality performance André B. Bondi is a senior staff engineer at Siemens Corp., Corporate Technologies in Princeton, New Jersey. His specialties include performance requirements, performance analysis, modeling, simulation, and testing. Bondi has applied his industrial and academic experience to the solution of performance issues in many problem domains. In addition to holding a doctorate in computer science and a master’s in statistics, he is a Certified Scrum Master.
