Abstract

We add specifications of location-aware measurements to performance models in a compositional fashion, promoting precision in performance measurement design. Using immediate actions to send control signals between measurement components we are able to obtain more accurate measurements from our stochastic models without disturbing their structure. A software tool processes both the model and the measurement specifications to give response time distributions and quantiles, an essential calculation in determining satisfaction of service-level agreements (SLAs).
