  abstract = {Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) represent an architectural shift for building business applications based on loosely-coupled services. In a multi-layered SOA environment the exact conditions under which services are to be delivered can be formally specified by Service Level Agreements (SLAs). However, typical SLAs are just specified at the customer-level and do not allow service providers to manage their IT stack accordingly as they have no insight on how customer-level SLAs translate to metrics or parameters at the various layers of the IT stack. In this paper we present a technical architecture for a multi-level SLA management framework. We discuss the fundamental components and in- terfaces in this architecture and explain the developed integrated framework. Furthermore, we show results from a qualitative evaluation of the framework in the context of an open reference case.},

  abstract = {Performance prediction methods can help software architects to identify potential performance problems, such as bottlenecks, in their software systems during the design phase. In such early stages of the software life-cycle, only a little information is available about the system´┐Żs implementation and execution environment. However, these details are crucial for accurate performance predictions. Performance completions close the gap between available high-level models and required low-level details. Using model-driven technologies, transformations can include details of the implementation and execution environment into abstract performance models. However, existing approaches do not consider the relation of actual implementations and performance models used for prediction. Furthermore, they neglect the broad variety of possible implementations and middleware platforms, possible configurations, and possible usage scenarios. In this paper, we (i) establish a formal relation between generated performance models and generated code, (ii) introduce a design and application process for parametric performance completions, and (iii) develop a parametric performance completion for Message-oriented Middleware according to our method. Parametric performance completions are independent of a specific platform, reflect performance-relevant software configurations, and capture the influence of different usage scenarios. To evaluate the prediction accuracy of the completion for Message-oriented Middleware, we conducted a real-world case study with the SPECjms2007 Benchmark [http://www.spec.org/jms2007/]. The observed deviation of measurements and predictions was below 10% to 15%},

  abstract = {Software performance engineering (SPE) enables software architects to ensure high performance standards for their applications. However, applying SPE in practice is still challenging. Most enterprise applications include a large software basis, such as middleware and legacy systems. In many cases, the software basis is the determining factor of the system's overall timing behavior, throughput, and resource utilization. To capture these influences on the overall system's performance, established performance prediction methods (modelbased and analytical) rely on models that describe the performance-relevant aspects of the system under study. Creating such models requires detailed knowledge on the system's structure and behavior that, in most cases, is not available. In this paper, we abstract from the internal structure of the system under study. We focus our efforts on message-oriented middleware and analyze the dependency between the MOM's usage and its performance. We use statistical inference to conclude these dependencies from observations. For ActiveMQ 5.3, the resulting functions predict the performance with an relative mean square error 0.1.},

  abstract = {In software engineering, performance and the integration of performance analysis methodologies gain increasing importance, especially for complex systems. Well-developed methods and tools can predict non-functional performance properties like response time or resource utilization in early design stages, thus promising time and cost savings. However, as performance modeling and performance prediction is still a young research area, the methods are not yet well-established and in wide-spread industrial use. This work is a case study of the applicability of the Palladio Component Model as a performance prediction method in an industrial environment. We model and analyze different design alternatives for storage virtualization on an IBM (Trademark of IBM in USA and/or other countries) system. The model calibration, validation and evaluation is based on data measured on a System z9 (Trademark of IBM in USA and/or other countries) as a proof of concept. The results show that performance predictions can identify performance bottlenecks and evaluate design alternatives in early stages of system development. The experiences gained were that performance modeling helps to understand and analyze a system. Hence, this case study substantiates that performance modeling is applicable in industry and a valuable method for evaluating design decisions.},

  abstract = {Nowadays, virtualization solutions are gaining increasing importance. By enabling the sharing of physical resources, thus making resource usage more efficient, they promise energy and cost savings. Additionally, virtualization is the key enabling technology for Cloud Computing and server consolidation. However, the effects of sharing resources on system performance are not yet well-understood. This makes performance prediction and performance management of services deployed in such dynamic systems very challenging. Because of the large variety of virtualization solutions, a generic approach to predict the performance influences of virtualization platforms is highly desirable. In this paper, we present a hierarchical model capturing the major performance-relevant factors of virtualization platforms. We then propose a general methodology to quantify the influence of the identified factors based on an empirical approach using benchmarks. Finally, we present a case study of Citrix XenServer 5.5, a state-of-the-art virtualization platform.},

  abstract = {Modern service-oriented systems have increasingly complex loosely-coupled architectures that often exhibit poor performance and resource efficiency and have high operating costs. This is due to the inability to predict at run-time the effect of dynamic changes in the system environment (e.g., varying service workloads) and adapt the system configuration accordingly. In this paper, we describe a long-term vision and approach for designing systems with built-in self-aware performance and resource management capabilities. We advocate the use of architecture-level performance models extracted dynamically from the evolving system configuration and maintained automatically during operation. The models will be exploited at run-time to adapt the system to changes in the environment ensuring that resources are utilized efficiently and performance requirements are continuously satisfied.},

By combining the modeling power and expressiveness of queueing networks and stochastic Petri nets, queueing Petri nets provide a number of advantages. In this paper, we present Version 2.0 of our tool QPME (Queueing Petri net Modeling Environment) for modeling and analysis of systems using queueing Petri nets. The development of the tool was initiated by Samuel Kounev in 2003 at the Technische Universit\"{a} Darmstadt in the group of Prof. Alejandro Buchmann. Since then the tool has been distributed to more than 100 organizations worldwide. QPME provides an Eclipse-based editor for building queueing Petri net models and a powerful simulation engine for analyzing the models. After presenting the tool, we discuss ongoing work on the QPME project and the planned future enhancements of the tool.},

The transformation to service-oriented architecture (SOA) concepts, mainly services and loose coupling, promises to meet these demands. However, elevated complexity in management and evolution processes is required for the migration of existing systems towards SOA. Studies in this area of research have revealed a gap between in continuous and actual tool support of development teams throughout the process phases of evolution processes. Thus, in this article we introduce a method that fosters evolution by an iterative approach and illustrate how each phase of this method can be tool-supported.},
