Performance measurement of distributed systems
Run time performance measurement of a certain class of distributed systems is considered, with a view to developing response time related measures for Local Area Networks. A model of user interaction with a distributed system is developed, for which Remote response ratio and Remote component are proposed as useful indices. Monitoring tools to measure these values are described, and results are given for two Local Area Networks with different configurations and contrasting natural workloads. The lack of forethought given to performance measurement in the design of the networks surveyed and varying measures of workload is also discussed.
