Abstract : A real workload of a digital computer is characterized by the magnitude of demands placed on the various system resources. Selected performance variables chosen from these demands can be examined with the purpose of projecting their statistical characteristics onto a synthetically constructed, representative workload. This paper describes a general approach of statistical analysis for representative workload characterization and presents an illustration of this approach using the IBM System Management Facility data.
