Performance Evaluation

Books on Performance Analysis are often mainly about queueing theory as applied to computer performance. As such, the following book/notes are highly recommended for learning aobut queueing theory.

  • Edward D. Lazowska, John Zahorjan, G. Scott Graham, Kenneth C. Sevcik. (1984). Quantitative System Performance : Computer system analysis using queueing network models. Prentice-Hall, Englewood Cliffs, N.J. (417 pp.) This book is available on line at
  • Lecture Notes on Performance Evaluation, by Andreas Willig, Universtat Potsdam. (mainly queueing theory). 2004. 281 pp.
  • Methods, Practice and Theory for the Performance Evaluation of Computer and Communication Systems, by Jean-Yves Le Boudec, EPFL, July 14, 2006. 341 pp. For queueing, especially look at Chapters 4,5,11.
  • The Practical Performance Analyst by Neil J. Gunther, 1998.
    The web site has the complete text of the old edition, with lots of useful information. However, if you want the latest edition, you will have to purchase it.
  • Performance Modeling and Analysis of Computer Communication Networks, by Kenneth S. Vastola (Electrical Computer and Systems Engineering Dept., Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY 12180-3590)
    This includes an introduction to probability and about half of the document is on queueing.
  • Performance Evaluation Notes, by D. Towsley, 2002. Dept. of Computer Science, U. of Massachusetts. Included is a technical report/tutorial by R. Nelson on matrix geometric methods.
  • ECE 658: Performance Evaluation and Simulation Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Cyprus. There are some nice slides here on queueing theory.
  • Modeling and Performance Evaluation Course Notes, by Vishal Misra. 2005.
  • A course on "Performance Analysis of Communication Networks" by Malathi Veeraraghavan.
