SPTP11 — Performance Profile Loads need tags for throughput

  • Key: SPTP11-3
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5989
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Carleton University ( Murray Woodside)
  • Summary:

    The PAclosedLoad and PAopenLoad stereotypes should both have tags for
    throughput
    in [responses/unit_time]. The PAresource stereotype has already a
    PAthroughput tag
    of type Real, so this would be suitable.

    A more appropriate type for Throughput would be desirable.

    • PAperfValue is suitable for describing delay, and time between
      events, but
      not a rate.
    • RTarrivalPattern type is good for describing event sequences, but
      it
      assumes that the event pattern is imposed on the system. Throughput is
      usually a
      result, and often we don't know its pattern but only the mean rate.
    • A full treatment of throughput might have to treat traffic
      variability and
      self-similarity!!
