research and development
Research and Development
  • Two threads of work:
    • Performance Engineering of Software and Distributed Systems
      • Stochastic models (Markov models, queuing models) applied to multi-tier server systems, modeling tools, measurement analysis tools, overload control.
    • Computer Networks (Performance)
      • Wireless LAN performance analysis, admission control, Linux TCP/IP stack performance, SMS capacity analysis, location determination.

software performance research work done
Software Performance-Research Work Done
  • Overload Control Mechanism for Web-Servers (M.Tech.+Ph.D)
    • Presented at IISW-04 (held with RTSS’04), Lisbon Portugal. (Co-authors: V. Mathur, N. Singmar, Prof. D. Manjunath)
    • Paper invited for submission to special issue of International Journal on Critical Infrastructures
  • Complexity Aware Queuing Models of Software Servers (Ph.D)
    • In Proceedings of MASCOTS’ 04, Volendam, The Netherlands (Co-author: V. Mathur)

software performance tool development ongoing
Software Performance –Tool Development (Ongoing)
  • “CAPE Tool” (Computer Aided Performance Engineering)
    • Tool that takes high-level software and hardware specification, generates queuing network model, and produces performance measures
    • Sponsored by MHRD
  • “AutoProf” (Automated Profiler)
    • Tool that co-ordinates and automates the resource usage profiling of distributed server systems
    • Sponsored by Intel, USA. (Joint project with Prof. Bellur)

(Total Outlay: Rs. 23 Lakhs approx.)

software performance future research directions
Software Performance –Future Research Directions
  • Overload control
    • Analytical model, more sophisticated yet practically usable techniques.
    • Generalize to admission control and Software QoS
  • Distributed systems performance modeling
    • Further enhancements in analysis tool (CAPE)
    • “Design” tool – budgeting, deployment, configuration
      • Applications to autonomic computing, self-configuration
  • Measurement tools
    • Further develop “AutoProf” – automated capacity analysis tool
