Advanced Computer Performance Modeling and Simulation2 Oct. 2010
- Published on Amazon.com
Excellent book with 337 pages of brain candy. In the book modelling is actually spelt modelling, it's probably an American word for modelling! (I'm English) 1. Hierarchical Architecture Simulation Environment 2. Modelling Multiprocessor Architectures 3. Instrumentation Systems for Parallel Tools 4. A Methodology for Performance Modelling of Distributed Cache-Coherent Multiprocessors 5. Tracing Nondeterministic Programs on Shared Memory Multiprocessors. 6. Memory management and speedup Issues in Parallel Simulation 7. Load Balancing Strategies for Parallel Simulation on a Multiprocessor Machine 8. An Object-Orientated Environment for Parallel Discrete-Event Simulation 9. Stochastic Petri-nets: Introduction and Applications to the Modelling of Computer and Communications Systems 10. Stochastic Process Algebras: A New Approach to Performance Modelling 11. Performance Evaluation Using Micro-Benchmarking and Machine Analysis 12. Evaluation and Design of Benchmark Suites
Book has been wrote in a multiple published paper style. Each paper has excellent references, I've only read a few so far and they are of a high standard. Well worth the money and delivery to the UK took less than a week.
