COSC 4387: Computer Performance Evaluation

Discrete and continuous simulation of dynamic systems. Topics include: simulation of probabilistic systems; mathematical models of real systems; system classifications; random number generators; simulation languages; single queue and queue networks. Workloads, benchmarks, performance measurement techniques, and case studies will be used in system capacity planning, hardware selection and upgrade, and performance tuning. Prerequisites: COSC 2336, COSC 3345/3145.
