Title: Future Directions in Performance Evaluation Research


1
Future Directions in Performance Evaluation
Research
  • Panelists
  • Frederica Darema, NSF
  • Albert Greenberg, Microsoft Research
  • Adolfy Hoisie, Los Alamos National Lab
  • Don Towsley, Umass-Amherst
  • Organizer
  • Evgenia Smirni, WilliamMary

2
Historical Overview
  • Past versus future
  • Overview of past -- looking at Sigmetrics
    proceedings
  • Conference started in 1973
  • Research topics shift in different decades
  • Theory versus experiments
  • Application areas

3
Early years 1970s
  • Bimodal focus Theory -- Measurements
    (benchmarking)
  • 1975 BCMP paper (JACM)
  • Applications virtual memory, multiprogramming,
    working set, paging,instrumentation and
    measurements, hardware monitors, business systems
  • Hardware IBM, CDC, PDP-11/70, VAX/VMS

4
Queuing Networks Era 1980s
  • Clear focus on queuing networks most (now
    textbook) results
  • 1980 Mean Value Analysis (Reiser/Lavenberg,
    JACM)
  • 1983 Stochastic Petri Nets paper
    (Marsan/Conte/Balbo, Sigmetrics83)
  • ApplicationsI/O, storage, DBs, distributed
    parallel systems, pipelining, networking
  • protocols, multiprocessor systems, shared memory
    multoprocessors
  • 1986 1st Joint Sigmetrics/Performance conference
  • Position paper Insularity of
    Performance Evaluation (Ferrari, IEEE TSE)
  • Hardware DEC, Cray IM, Cray X-MP, Cyber 205,
    hypercubes
  • Applications are becoming more concrete, parallel
    and distributed topics dominate the late 80s

5
Systems Applications 1990s
  • Clear focus on systems measurements, new
    architectures, parallel systems
  • System support for performance of emerging
    systems and applications
  • Applications scheduling, multimedia servers,
    traffic modeling, multi-level caching, Internet
    and
  • Web servers, storage, TCP/ATM, databases
  • Trends
  • Early 90s parallel and distributed systems
  • Late 90s networking
  • Theoretical contributions declining

6
Networking Applications 2000s
  • Applications moving from systems to networking
    applications
  • 2000 Best systems paper award,
  • 2006 Best paper in networking
  • 2007 Best papers in systems
  • Applications networking applications ranging
    from 30 to 50 of the conference papers
  • Emerging applications energy aware, sensor
    networks, traffic engineering
  • Increasing trend in theoretical contributions
