Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a Mean Value Analysis (MVA)-based methodology for the 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 to estimate system capacity. Finally, we exemplify the methodology usage via transactions implemented in two distributed Linux systems.
