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.

Performance evaluation is a critical stage of software- and hardware-system development that every computer engineer and scientist should master. Although complex Рrequiring skills in mathematics, measurement techniques and simulation Рperformance evaluation is primarily an art; indeed, the most difficult stage in a performance analysis is defining the approach: once you know what to do, it is less difficult to define a plan of attack with your familiar software tools. We present a set of topics, which we believe should be part of every engineer's intellectual toolkit. This includes the statistical exploitation of numerical results in an efficient and ethical way, for example: how to summarize variability or fairness; what transient removal in a simulation is; and how to make predictions from a time series. We also present well-known performance patterns, which helps to quickly bring the engineer to the main issues. For queuing theory, we focus on a subset of very useful results, such as operational laws. A highlight of the book is the development of Palm calculus, also called “the importance of the viewpoint,” which is central to queuing theory. Indeed, this topic has so many applications to simulation and to system analysis in general that it is a very good time investment. This book began as a set of lecture notes for a course given at EPFL.
