Automated Capacity Planning for PEPA Models

Christopher D. Williams, Jane Hillston

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Capacity planning is concerned with the provisioning of systems in order to ensure that they meet the demand or performance requirements of users. Currently for PEPA models, a modeller who wishes to solve a capacity planning problem has to either carry out a manual search for an optimal configuration or work outside the provided tool suite. We present a new extension to the Eclipse Plug-in for PEPA which integrates automated capacity planning into the functionality of the tool, thus allowing optimal configurations of large scale PEPA models to be found.
