Theoretische Arbeiten

Zusammenfassung

Die vorliegende Arbeit hat zum Ziel, die Anwendbarkeit von analytischen Verfahren und der Simulationstechnik zur Behandlung aktueller Problemstellungen in der Praxis der Leistungsanalyse von Computersystemen zu diskutieren. An einem Beispiel wird dann das uns für viele Fälle geeignet erscheinende hybride Verfahren gezeigt und die damit mögliche Flexibilität erläutert; gleichzeitig weisen wir aber auch auf die dabei entstehenden Probleme hin.

Summary

The central interest of this work is to discuss the applicability of analytical and simulation methods to practical problems in performance prediction of computer systems. With an example we show the flexibility but also the existing problems of a hybrid technique.
