To anyone who finds these models interesting and wants to learn a lot more - I’d highly recommend Mor Harchol-Balter’s textbook: https://www.amazon.com/Performance-Modeling-Design-Computer-... (She is currently a professor at Carnegie Mellon).


The three models here are intimately related I believe.

For a generalisation of all them, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_J._Gunther#Universal_Law_...

Neil's books, software and "gaphorisms" are all good reading.

Hmmm, I think I know where the OP saw this link posted originally :-).


Where? I'm always looking for other stuff to read.
