LISA 2001 Abstract
Simulation of User-Driven Computer Behavior
Hoarek Haugerud and Sigmund Straumsnes, Oslo
We simulate a computer system by modeling its users as individuals
who have separate needs for resources like processes and login time.
During the simulations the users make decisions with probabilities
which depends on the time of day and on the character of the user.
This makes us able to reproduce the large scale behavior measured at
real computer systems as well as predicting the behavior of systems
when varying the number and characters of the users.
