Computational Geometric Performance Analysis of Limit Cycles in Timed Transition Systems
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 1993-09-01), TR-93-30
Certain parallel software performance evaluation problems are equivalent to computational geometric problems. Consider a timed transition system representing a parallel program: a set of variables, a set of states, an ...
Toward a Machine Assisted Software Performance Diagnosis Methodology
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 1993-04-01), TR-93-12
This paper discusses a methodology for diagnosing performance problems for parallel and distributed programs. The methodology is based on the formation and testing of hypotheses about the cause of performance bottlenecks. ...
Geometric Performance Analysis of Semaphore Programs
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 1993-08-01), TR-93-29
A key problem in designing parallel programs that achieve a desired performance goal is the ability to analyze exactly program performance, given a specification of the process syncronization structure and the execution ...
