CS5239 Computer Systems Performance Analysis
AY2011/12 – Semester 2
This course aims to provide students with a working knowledge of computer performance evaluation. It covers fundamental techniques such as measurement and mathematical modeling. The module is divided into four main parts: capacity planning, measurement techniques and tools, analytic modeling techniques and case studies. Topics include: capacity planning; measurement techniques and tools covering performance metrics, workload characterization, and instrumentation; analytical modeling techniques covering operational analysis, stochastic queuing network analysis; principles of scalable performance.
