Analytical Performance Modeling for Computer Systems by Y.C. Tay

By Y.C. Tay

This ebook is an advent to analytical functionality modeling for desktops, i.e., writing equations to explain their functionality habit. it truly is available to readers who've taken college-level classes in calculus and likelihood, networking, and working structures. this isn't a coaching handbook for changing into knowledgeable functionality analyst. quite, the target is to aid the reader build uncomplicated types for studying and realizing the structures within which they're . Describing a classy approach abstractly with mathematical equations calls for a cautious selection of assumptions and approximations. those assumptions and approximations make the version tractable, yet they need to no longer eliminate crucial features of the procedure, nor introduce spurious houses. to assist the reader comprehend the alternatives and their implications, this publication discusses the analytical versions in 20 learn papers. those papers disguise a extensive diversity of subject matters: processors and disks, databases and multimedia, worms and instant, and so forth. An Appendix presents a few questions for readers to workout their knowing of the types in those papers. desk of Contents: Preliminaries / ideas and Little's legislation / unmarried Queues / Open structures / Markov Chains / Closed platforms / Bottlenecks and stream Equivalence / Deterministic Approximations / temporary research / Experimental Validation and research / research with an Analytical version

Genetic Algorithms and Genetic Programming: Modern Concepts and Practical Applications

Genetic Algorithms and Genetic Programming: sleek ideas and useful functions discusses algorithmic advancements within the context of genetic algorithms (GAs) and genetic programming (GP). It applies the algorithms to major combinatorial optimization difficulties and describes constitution identity utilizing HeuristicLab as a platform for set of rules development.

The ebook specializes in either theoretical and empirical facets. The theoretical sections discover the real and attribute houses of the fundamental GA in addition to major features of the chosen algorithmic extensions built by way of the authors. within the empirical elements of the textual content, the authors observe gasoline to 2 combinatorial optimization difficulties: the touring salesman and capacitated motor vehicle routing difficulties. to focus on the homes of the algorithmic measures within the box of GP, they research GP-based nonlinear constitution identity utilized to time sequence and category difficulties.

Written by means of center contributors of the HeuristicLab crew, this e-book presents a greater realizing of the elemental workflow of fuel and GP, encouraging readers to set up new bionic, problem-independent theoretical innovations. by means of evaluating the result of common GA and GP implementation with a number of algorithmic extensions, it additionally indicates the best way to considerably raise feasible answer quality.

4, we get corresponding bounds on response time R from R = T − Z. 2. 2: For a closed network, the shapes of throughput X and system time T for large N are determined by bottlenecks [22]. 2 FLOW EQUIVALENCE Recall that, for an M/M/3 queue, the service rate depends on the number of jobs k in the queue. This is an example of a load-dependent queue, represented as with output rates X(1) = μ, X(2) = 2μ and X(k) = 3μ for k ≥ 3. We saw in Chapter 4 the computational tedium in solving a multi-dimensional Markov chain, and the idea of deriving a faster approximation through state aggregation.

5)). Like GPRS [23], the model is a discrete-time Markov chain with transition probabilities between states (instead of transition rates in the case of continuous-time Markov chains). 35 CHAPTER 5 Closed Systems As we can see from the previous chapter, the solution of closed queueing networks can be very tedious. This is so even for separable networks (which are easy to solve if they are open, as we saw in Chapter 3). The solution is easier if we give up state probabilities, and only solve for average values.

Similarly, if the computing resources are also limited (Sec. 3), then the sampled streams may not have the intended λa and λb . SleepingDisks [37] Fig. 6 shows the system for this paper. The input parameters include arrival rate αi , service time as specified by Exp(tij ) and V ar(tij ), transition time Ti , power Pij , Pij , and Pij . The main performance measures are response time (Fig. 7), transaction rate (Fig. 12a) and energy per transaction (Fig. 12b). 4. DISCUSSION 19 The main issues are: (i) the tradeoff between performance and energy and (ii) adaptive disk layout in response to dynamic workload changes.
