Specifying quality of service for distributed systems based upon behavior models
MetadataShow full item record
The substantial complexity and strict requirements of distributed command and control systems creates an environment that places extreme demands upon system resources. Furthermore, inconsistent resource distribution also introduces the distinct possibility of potential errors, and process failures. Many of these potential difficulties can be understood and addressed through a practical analysis of the resource management and distribution procedures employed within these systems. This analysis should include a direct focus upon the essential quality of service that is shared among the software programs that operate within this environment. However, the current approaches to this analysis are lacking in that there is no accurate method to determine precisely what quality of service based conflicts take place during program execution. This problem can be addressed through examination of specific quality of service actions during program execution. To achieve a precise analysis of quality of service actions this dissertation research has implemented an approach to examine the exact quality of service execution path during program operation.
