Danilo Ardagna, Simona Bernardi, Eugenio Gianniti, Soroush Karimian Aliabadi, Diego Perez-Palacin, José Ignacio Requeno
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In these scenarios, a central place is held by the MapReduce framework and in particular its open source implementation, Apache Hadoop.  ...  We propose models of increasing complexity and accuracy, ranging from queueing networks to stochastic well formed nets, able to estimate job performance under a number of scenarios of interest, including  ...  Several works describe the adoption of Petri nets (PNs) for MapReduce modeling. For instance, Castiglione et al.  ...
