Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a Mean Value Analysis based methodology for performance evaluation of transactions executed in a multi server distributed system. We first present probabilistic arguments to investigate under which conditions MVA models provide worst case response times, without large overshoots. Then, we show how to characterize the distributed server system so as to construct a model to predict response times as well as estimate system capacity. Finally, we exemplify the methodology usage via transactions implemented in two distributed Linux systems.
