A capacity management service for resource pools
Resource pools are computing environments that offer virtualized access to shared resources. When used effectively they can align the use of capacity with business needs (flexibility), lower infrastructure costs (via resource sharing), and lower operating costs (via automation). This paper describes the Quartermaster capacity manager service for managing such pools. It implements a trace-based technique that models workload (e.g., application) resource demands, their corresponding resource allocations, and resource access quality of service. The primary advantages of the technique are its accuracy, generality, support for resource access qualities of service, and optimizing search method. We pose general capacity management questions for resource pools and explain how the capacity manager helps to address them in an automated manner. A case study demonstrates and validates the method on empirical data from an enterprise application. We show that the technique exploits much of the r...
