It is important to understand performance aspects of a computer system from the software
architecture and its configurations. For a system that has various possible configurations, the
performance analysis will become difficult. This thesis describes a compositional
model-building approach which is useful when there are many possible configurations. This
approach is based on assembling the sub models and is demonstrated in a network software
In addition, the derivation of parameters must be well addressed for performance modeling.
The measurements and parameter estimation techniques can be deployed in completing the
performance model. We apply these approaches and techniques to discussing the real
problems we encountered in parameterizing the performance model.
The converter tool, which automates the compositional model-building approach, has been
developed for CGNet. This tool is a solution to bridging the gap between the network
configurations and the performance analysis. It is a configuration-based model-building tool
for CGNet. With the tool, we can generate the performance model from configurations.
