Performance prediction with skeletons
The performance skeleton of an application is a short running program whose performance in any scenario reflects the performance of the application it represents. Specifically, the execution time of the performance skeleton is a small fixed fraction of the execution time of the corresponding application in any execution environment. Such a skeleton can be employed to quickly estimate the performance of a large application under existing network and node sharing. This paper presents a framework for automatic construction of performance skeletons of a specified execution time and evaluates their use in performance prediction with CPU and network sharing. The approach is based on capturing the execution behavior of an application and automatically generating a synthetic skeleton program that reflects that execution behavior. The paper demonstrates that performance skeletons running for a few seconds can predict the application execution time fairly accurately. Relationship of skeleton ex...
