dc.description.abstractPerformance analysis is a widely accepted technique used by many computer system designers. It can predict actual system performance, while helping to identify problems in the design or areas for improvement. Furthermore, if the simulation model is powerful, variants of the original system can be examined without going to the trouble and expense of building an actual system. The main objective of this research is to develop and present a framework for performance modeling of computing systems and networks. The framework will be applied to the study of a class of networks developed by Tandem Computers, Inc. This class of networks is scalable, fault-tolerant, and can achieve parallel computing via message passing.en
