PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS OF COMPUTER SYSTEMS
Credit points: 15
Engineers design systems to address the needs of the society. A part of the design process is to determine how well the designed systems perform. In this subject the students learn the methods for analysing systems performance. The topics covered in the subject include a review of concepts and tools to be used, system modelling using series-parallel acyclic graphs, an overview of performance estimation methods, discrete event simulation, generation of synthetic load-generation of random variables, generation of pseudo random numbers, statistical analysis of simulated data, variance reduction techniques, statistical validation techniques. Though the focus is on simulation, analysis of simple systems using queuing theory and stochastic modelling is also covered.
