A complete selection of benchmarks for measuring dependability in hardware-software systems

As desktops became extra complicated and mission-critical, it really is crucial for structures engineers and researchers to have metrics for a system's dependability, reliability, availability, and serviceability. Dependability benchmarks are beneficial for steering improvement efforts for process companies, acquisition offerings of approach dealers, and reviews of recent thoughts by means of researchers in academia and industry.

This ebook gathers jointly all dependability benchmarks built so far through and academia and explains many of the ideas and ideas of dependability benchmarking. It collects the professional wisdom of DBench, a study undertaking funded by way of the ecu Union, and the IFIP specified curiosity staff on Dependability Benchmarking, to make clear this significant zone. It additionally presents a wide landscape of examples and suggestions for outlining dependability benchmarks.

Dependability Benchmarking for laptop Systems comprises contributions from a reputable mixture of business and educational assets: IBM, Intel, Microsoft, solar Microsystems, serious software program, Carnegie Mellon college, LAAS-CNRS, Technical collage of Valencia, collage of Coimbra, and collage of Illinois. it's a useful source for engineers, researchers, approach owners, process buyers, computing device experts, and method integrators.
