Performance analysis

Individual course

This course teaches performance analysis of modern computer and communication systems.

Course contents

  1. Recap of prerequisities
  2. Stochastics: Conditional expectation. Phase-type distributions. Reversibility. Regenerative processes.
  3. Single-server queues: M/G/1-FIFO queue. M/G/1-PS queue. Optimal scheduling problem. Applications.
  4. Multi-server queueing systems: Separability. Optimal dispatching problem. Applications.
  5. Queueing networks: Open queueing networks. Closed queueing networks. Applications.
  6. Resource sharing: Max-min fairness, Alpha-fairness, Balanced fairness. Applications.

Learning outcomes

After the course, the student

  • is able to apply Markov processes and regenerative processes to model various computer and communication systems;
  • is able to construct, analyse and optimise stochastic queueing models to evaluate the performance of the system;
  • comprehends selected applications of the performance analysis of modern computer and communication systems.
