Measuring robustness for distributed computing systems
MetadataShow full item record
Performing computing and communication tasks on parallel and distributed systems may involve the coordinated use of different types of machines, networks, interfaces, and other resources. All of these resources should be allocated in a way that maximizes some system performance measure. However, allocation decisions and performance prediction are often based on "nominal" values of application and system parameters. The actual values of these parameters may differ from the nominal ones, e.g., because of inaccuracies in the initial estimation or because of changes over time caused by an unpredictable ...
