TECHNIQUE FOR GENERATION OF SIMULATED WORKLOAD.
The pattern of workload of jobs in a multiprogramming computer environment plays a key role in the achievement of the performance goals for that system. In order to assess performance, whether by modeling, simulation, or synthetic or real benchmarking, it is necessary to build a model of the expected workload. A simple method is discussed that represents the real workload of a computer system more accurately than any other known method. The technique takes into account correlations between workload characteristics.
