  Performance monitoring in SAP HANA’s continuous integration process
Rehmann K., Seo C., Hwang D., Truong B., Boehm A., Lee D.  ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review 43(4): 43-52, 2016. Type: Article

Setting up a performance test and validation environment for every source code change is known to be prohibitively expensive. Conversely, SAP HANA’s continuous integration (CI) case suggests that such tests need to be done for all changes be...

  Exploring smart grid and data center interactions for electric power load balancing
Wang H., Huang J., Lin X., Mohsenian-Rad H.  ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review 41(3): 89-94, 2013. Type: Article

Cloud computing requires huge data centers that consume significant amounts of electric energy. Such a significant energy consumer may be a risk factor for the power company since it increases the peak load and overload can occur, harming the equi...

  Understanding SMS spam in a large cellular network
Jiang N., Jin Y., Skudlark A., Zhang Z.  ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review 41(1): 381-382, 2013. Type: Article

Jiang et al. conducted a good study of SMS spam in a large cellular network in the US. They collected a large set of SMS spam through user-generated spam reports, which are more reliable and cleaner compared with other sources. After that, they tr...

  Triangular solution of linear systems in tensor product format
Fernandes P., Plateau B.  ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review 28(4): 30-32, 2001. Type: Article

A solution method for a linear system with its matrix formed as the tensor product of several matrices is presented. The algorithm works with the LU decompositions of the small matrices in the tensor product, resulting in a very efficient approac...

  Use of application characteristics and limited preemption for run-to-completion parallel processor scheduling policies
Chiang S., Mansharamani R., Vernon M.  ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review 22(1): 33-44, 1994. Type: Article

The performance of non-preemptive scheduling policies in multiprogrammed parallel processing systems is investigated. A large body of literature in this field already exists. Through discrete event simulation, the authors provide some observations...
