If you want to learn about Capacity Management and you don't have the time to follow a course during day time this book will give you the training you were looking for. It has a lot of useful information and examples about the subject. It will give you all the basic information you need in this area, shows you the angles and gives you the right handles for this complex area of IT.

Excellent book with all the math foundations for understanding and designing statistical models for systems performance analysis.
This book will never become obsolete and if you liked Donald Knuth Computer Programming Series this one is for you.
This is a reference book and it requires some math skills and background to understand.

This book is a classic in its field. It covers performance analysis for computers, but is very easily extended to any area of performance analysis. It covers some theory, but mainly tips and "stories around the campfire" from those with a great deal of experience in the area. And that's actually more valuable than pure academic theory. The math is not too bad. One great feature is that you can focus on only those areas that you are concerned about and you can go as in-depth as you want. It's also true that it will never become obsolete (although some examples might be).

This book is the most impressive performance assessment, modeling and simulation text I have read. It is a perfect balance of systems analysis and the necessary mathematical foundations that are extremely important to fully understand the disciplines Jain covers in this text. I have used this book numerous times for capacity planning projects, simulation studies, statistical analysis and for a guide in delivering presentations and writing papers.
