New PDF release: Analyzing Computer System Performance with Perl::PDQ

By Neil J. Gunther

ISBN-10: 3642225829

ISBN-13: 9783642225826

To unravel functionality difficulties in sleek computing infrastructures, usually comprising hundreds of thousands of servers working enormous quantities of purposes, spanning a number of levels, you would like instruments that transcend mere reporting. you would like instruments that allow functionality research of program workflow around the whole firm. That's what PDQ (Pretty rattling fast) presents. PDQ is an open-source functionality analyzer according to the paradigm of queues. Queues are ubiquitous in each computing setting as buffers, and because any program structure should be represented as a circuit of queueing delays, PDQ is a average healthy for examining approach functionality.   construction at the good fortune of the 1st version, this significantly accelerated moment variation now contains 4 elements. half I comprises the foundational recommendations, in addition to a brand new first bankruptcy that explains the valuable function of queues in profitable functionality research. half II presents the fundamentals of queueing thought in a hugely intelligible sort for the non-mathematician; little greater than high-school algebra being required. half III provides many useful examples of the way PDQ could be utilized. The PDQ handbook has been relegated to an appendix partially IV, in addition to recommendations to the workouts contained in each one bankruptcy. all through, the Perl code listings were newly formatted to enhance clarity. The PDQ code and updates to the PDQ guide can be found from the author's website at www.perfdynamics.com

22 1 Why Queues Rule Performance Analysis 2002 The author proves that Amdahl’s law is equivalent to synchronous queueing in the machine repairman model [Gunther 2002a]. See Sects. 2. 2003 In an attempt to make PDQ more widely accessible to unix and Linux system administrators (who are often tasked with doing impromptu performance analysis), the author and Peter Harding release an open-source version of PDQ in Perl and Python. purdue. html). Similar to the Kanban concept developed by Toyota in the 1950s (see above), the largest objects that can be disassembled quickly are moved from the staging area first because it significantly reduces the amount of storage space needed.

7. Therefore, all computer architectures can be abstracted as networks of queues, and that is precisely what we shall consider in more detail in Chap. 5. Before we embark on any discussion about queueing theory, however, I want to underscore the importance of performance models. In particular, I would like to begin by noting that performance models are vital for proper performance analysis but those models do not necessarily have to be complicated. It is not even a requirement that they be queueing models, but whatever the particular abstraction, the models should be as simple as possible and, as Einstein reminded us, no simpler!

It should be clear from this example that the fraction ρ is the utilization of the cashier. 6). Then we can write: R 1 F= = . 7) is called the stretch factor because is represents the residence time R in multiples of the service period S. In Chap. 6, we show how F can be related to the unix or Linux load average, which is commonly used as a gauge of application server performance. 6 How Long Should My Queue Be? A simple question should have a simple answer. However, in performance analysis, what appears to be a simple question may contain a lot of hidden details.
