COSC 4211.03 Performance Evaluation of Computer
Section A Fall Tue, Thu 16:00-17:30
Topics covered may include the following.
- Review of Probability Theory - probability,
conditional probability, total probability, random
variables, moments, distributions (Bernoulli,
Poisson, exponential, hyperexponential, etc.)
- Stochastic Processes - Markov chains and birth and
- Queueing Theory - M/M/1 Queueing system in
detail; other forms of queueing systems including
limited population and limited buffers.
- Application - A case study involving use of the
queuing theory paradigm in performance evaluation
and modeling of computer systems such as open
networks of queues and closed queuing networks.
Use of approximation techniques, simulations,
measurements and parameter estimation.
