Measuring Computer Performance sets out the fundamental techniques used in analyzing and understanding the performance of computer systems. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on practical methods of measurement, simulation, and analytical modeling. The author discusses performance metrics and provides detailed coverage of the strategies used in benchmark programs. He gives intuitive explanations of the key statistical tools needed to interpret measured performance data. The book closes with a chapter on the technique of queueing analysis.time required to execute the computation W2 on this system. We then define the speedup value S such that R\ = SRj. This value allows us to say that the execution rate, or speed, of system I is 5 times faster than that of system 2. Substituting foranbsp;...
