dc.description.abstractThe project investigated the problem of performance optimisation of computer systems at the systems level. It was ascertained that no generally accepted technique for approaching this problem exist. A theoretical approach was thus developed which describes the system, the workload and the performance in terms of matrices which are deduced from measured data. An attempt is then made to verify this theory by applying it to a real system in a controlled environment. A dummy workload is used and measurements are made on the computer system for various configurations. The results thus obtained are compared with the expected trends in system performance and conclusions are drawn which appear to verify the validity of the theory proposed.en
