The Impact of Buffer Finiteness on the Loss Rate in a Priority Queueing System
This paper discusses five different ways to approximate the loss rate in a fundamental two class priority system, where each class has its own finite capacity buffer, as well as an...

Embedding Real Time in Stochastic Process Algebras
We present a stochastic process algebra including immediate actions, deadlock and termination, and explicit stochastic delays, in the setting of weak choice between immediate actio...

Worst Case Analysis of Batch Arrivals with the Increasing Convex Ordering
We consider a finite buffer queue with one deterministic server fed by packets arriving in batches. We assume that we are not able to fully describe the batch distribution: only th...

Experimental Analysis of the Correlation of HTTP GET Invocations
In this paper we experimentally investigate if optimal retry times can be determined based on models that assume independence of successive tries. We do this using data obtained fo...

Precise Regression Benchmarking with Random Effects: Improving Mono Benchmark Results
Benchmarking as a method of assessing software performance is known to suffer from random fluctuations that distort the observed performance. In this paper, we focus on the fluctua...

A Function-Equivalent Components Based Simplification Technique for PEPA Models
PEPA has recently been extended with functional rates [1][2]. These functions allow the specification of indirect interaction between components in such a way that the rate of an a...

Explicit Inverse Characterizations of Acyclic MAPs of Second Order
This paper shows how to construct a Markovian arrival process of second order from information on the marginal distribution and on its autocorrelation function. More precisely, clo...

A Precedence PEPA Model for Performance and Reliability Analysis
We propose new techniques to simplify the computation of the cycle times and the absorption times for a large class of PEPA models. These techniques allow us to simplify the model ...
