Capacity Planning for Computer Systems covers the principles, concepts, and practical application of capacity planning to computer systems. This book is divided into nine chapters and begins with an introduction to the foundation and metrics of capacity planning. This is a short, occasionally funny, book covers the four main tools of performance work: Performance Monitoring, Capacity Planning, Load Testing, and Modeling. For a performance book, this one has several unique features: It works for any collection of computers you by: 4. This chapter provides an overview of computer capacity planning. Computer capacity planning and computer performance management are closely related functions for the support of a computer installation. Satisfactory computer services imply high availability and reliability of the services, as well as adequate response time and turnaround time. About the Book: Computing systems must meet increasingly strict Quality of Service (QoS) requirements for performance, availability, security, and maintainability. To achieve these goals, designers, analysts, and capacity planners need a more thorough understanding of QoS issues, and the implications of their decisions.
Performance by Design: Computer Capacity Planning: : Menasce, Almeida, Menasce, Daniel A., Dowdy, Lawrence: BooksReviews: 2. Performance management means monitoring and allocating existing data processing resources to applications according to a Service Level Agreement (SLA) or informal service objectives. Capacity planning is the process of planning for sufficient computer capacity in a cost-effective manner to meet the future service needs for all users. Menasce and his team not only explain the different components of performance engineering and capacity planning but also show the connection among the different pieces of the performance puzzle 5/5(2). Measuring Computer Performance sets out the fundamental techniques used in analyzing and understanding the performance of computer systems. The emphasis is on practical methods of measurement, simulation, and analytical modeling. David Lilja discusses performance metrics and provides detailed coverage of the strategies used in benchmark s: 4.

Computer Capacity Planning: Theory and Practice deals with the theory and practice of computer capacity planning. Topics covered range from the tasks involved in computer capacity planning (inventory, workload measures and characterization, performance measurement, etc.) to environmental influences on computer capacity planning practices. Computing systems must meet increasingly strict Quality of Service (QoS) requirements for performance, availability, security, and maintainability. To achieve these goals, designers, analysts, and capacity planners need a far more thorough understanding of QoS issues, and the implications of /5(2). Software Tools: provided with the book is a disk that contains the source code for programs to solve multiple class open and closed queuing network models with load dependent servers. In addition, an educational version of QSolver/1, a PC based capacity planning software package is provided.
