Fluid computation of passage-time distributions in large Markov models

Richard A. Hayden, Anton Stefanek, Jeremy T. Bradley
2012 Theoretical Computer Science  
Finally, using the GPA tool, we take advantage of the rapid fluid computation of passage times to show how a multi-class client-server system can be optimised to satisfy multiple service level agreements  ...  Specifically, we show that for models of sufficient scale, global passage-time distributions can be well approximated by a deterministic fluid-derived passage-time measure.  ...  Fluid analysis of performance models offers the exciting potential for the analysis of massive state-spaces at small computational cost.  ...
