Architecture-Based Performance Analysis
journal contributionposted on 01.01.1989, 00:00 by Bridget Spitznagel, David Garlan
A software architecture should expose important system properties for consideration and analysis. Performancerelated properties are frequently of interest in determining the acceptability of a given software design. In this paper we show how queueing network modeling can be adapted to support performance analysis of software architectures. We also describe a tool for transforming a software architecture in a particular style into a queueing network and analyzing its performance.
