Abstract:

This report describes the results of an investigation on the use of a simple, two-server, cyclic queuing model to estimate the performance of the MITRE IBM 370 computer system. Controlled experiments were conducted in a dedicated environment using a batch workload consisting of parameter driven synthetic programs. For a large number of experiments there were significant differences between the calculated and the measured values of the average elapsed time. It is recommended that further analysis and experimental work be undertaken. Author
