The objective of this course is to provide students a working knowledge of computer performance evaluation and capacity planning.  It covers the three fundamental techniques that can be used to evaluate the performance of computer systems: measurement, simulation and mathematical modeling. The module is divided into four parts: introduction to performance analysis and capacity planning, measurement techniques and tools, analytic modeling techniques and case studies.

Topics include: performance analysis overview; measurement techniques and tools including workload characterization, instrumentation; computer simulation; analytical modeling techniques including operational analysis, stochastic queuing network analysis, performance of client-server architectures and analytical modeling of parallel programs, principles of scalable performance.
