Sensitivity of Application Performance to Resource Availability

Abstract

Existing literature has extensively explored and analysed the effects of shared resource contention to improve system throughput and resource utilisation. Nevertheless, a systematic study varying different resource availabilities and examining their combined effect on the performance of an individual application has not been conducted earlier. In this paper, we perform global sensitivity analysis using Monte Carlo simulations of three resource parameters – CPU availability, RAM availability and number of cores, and examine their effect on execution time of industry standard benchmark programs. In addition to understanding application performance sensitivity, our study also lends itself to identifying threshold levels of required resources, below which severe application performance degradation occurs.
