Stateful distributed interposition
John Reumann, Kang G. Shin
Pages: 1-48
DOI: 10.1145/966785.966786
Interposition-based system enhancements for multitiered servers are difficult to build because important system context is typically lost at application and machine boundaries. For example, resource quotas and user identities do not propagate easily...

Using certes to infer client response time at the web server
David Olshefski, Jason Nieh, Dakshi Agrawal
Pages: 49-93
DOI: 10.1145/966785.966787
As businesses continue to grow their World Wide Web presence, it is becoming increasingly vital for them to have quantitative measures of the mean client perceived response times of their web services. We present Certes (CliEnt Response Time...

Parallel program performance prediction using deterministic task graph analysis
Vikram S. Adve, Mary K. Vernon
Pages: 94-136
DOI: 10.1145/966785.966788
In this article, we consider analytical techniques for predicting detailed performance characteristics of a single shared memory parallel program for a particular input. Analytical models for parallel programs have been successful at providing simple...
