Quantitative System Performance, Computer System Analysis Using Queuing Network Models
by Edward D. Lazowska
Publisher: Prentice Hall 1984
Number of pages: 417
This book is written for computer system performance analysts. Its goal is to teach them to apply queueing network models in their work, as tools to assist in answering the questions of cost and performance that arise throughout the life of a computer system. The approach to the subject arises from the authors' collective experience in contributing to the theory of queueing network modelling, in embodying this theory in performance analysis tools, in applying these tools in the field, and in teaching computer system analysis using queueing network models in academic and industrial settings.
