Abstract : Performance analysis, as practiced by end users, appears to be dominated by the trial and error approach. Computer systems modeling techniques have received relatively little usage by such users except for the sporadic application of commercially available computer system simulators. The paper discusses some of the reasons underlying the lack of extensive usage of such techniques by end users, identifies an area of performance analysis appropriate to the usage of modeling techniques and discusses an approach to its investigation through their usage.
