We propose XQGen, a stand-alone, algebra-based XPath generator to aid engineers in testing and improving the design of XML query engines.  ...  In addition, given a set of labelpaths as workload input, XQGen is capable of generating query sets that honor the workload.  ...  This assists users in assessing the performance of their systems where special technologies have been designed and implemented to take advantage of query workload in pursuit of better query throughput.  ...

MetaSys: A Practical Open-Source Metadata Management System to Implement and Evaluate Cross-Layer Optimizations [article]

Nandita Vijaykumar, Ataberk Olgun, Konstantinos Kanellopoulos, Nisa Bostancı, Hasan Hassan, Mehrshad Lotfi, Phillip B. Gibbons, Onur Mutlu
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Hardware-software cooperative techniques are powerful approaches to improve the performance, quality of service, and security of general-purpose processors.  ...  Using MetaSys, we perform the first detailed experimental study to quantify the performance overheads of using a single metadata management system to enable multiple cross-layer optimizations in CPUs.  ...  For most workloads, even the smallest granularity we evaluated (64B) has a minimal impact on performance.  ...

Subjective Usability, Mental Workload Assessments and Their Impact on Objective Human Performance [chapter]

Luca Longo
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The main objective was to explore the relationship between the perception of usability of the interfaces of three popular web-sites and the mental workload imposed on end-users by a set of typical tasks  ...  Self-reporting procedures and inspection methods have been largely employed in the fields of interaction and web-design for assessing the usability of interfaces.  ...  Similarly, [15] investigated how the design of query interfaces influence stress, workload and performance during information search.  ...

A comprehensive approach to data warehouse testing

Matteo Golfarelli, Stefano Rizzi
2009 Proceeding of the ACM twelfth international workshop on Data warehousing and OLAP - DOLAP '09  
Testing is an essential part of the design life-cycle of any software product.  ...  In this paper we introduce a number of data martspecific testing activities, we classify them in terms of what is tested and how it is tested, and we discuss how they can be framed within a reference design  ...  Note that performance and stress tests must be focused on the front-end, that includes the client interface but also the reporting and OLAP server-side engines.  ...

Dummy Model Based Workload Modeling

Felix Putze, Tanja Schultz, Robert Propper
2015 2015 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics  
The dummy model consumes cognitive resources to reflect the effect of workload on behavior and performance.  ...  In this paper, we show how a model of human cognition based on ACT-R can be improved to accurately predict cognitive performance under different workload levels.  ...  Additionally, we saw that the impact of the two secondary tasks on the performance in the main task was different, which means that the approach requires the availability of multiple dummy models for different  ...

Device aging: A reliability and security concern

Daniel Kraak, Mottaqiallah Taouil, Said Hamdioui, Pieter Weckx, Francky Catthoor, Abhijit Chatterjee, Adit Singh, Hans-Joachim Wunderlich, Naghmeh Karimi
2018 2018 IEEE 23rd European Test Symposium (ETS)  
Device aging is an important concern in nanoscale designs. Due to aging the electrical behavior of transistors embedded in an integrated circuit deviates from original intended one.  ...  It is essential to assure the security of the sensitive tasks performed by the security-sensitive circuits and to guarantee the security of information stored within these devices in the presence of aging  ...  In the "stress" phase, which occurs when the transistor is on, positive interface traps are generated at the Si-SiO 2 interface.  ...

Experimental Investigation of the Impact of Linear and Nonlinear Information Presentation of Problem Solving

Narender K. Ramarapu, Mark N. Frolick, Ronald B. Wilkes
1994 International Conference on Information Systems  
This study investigates the match of technology (in this case, mode of information presentation) to problem task and the relative unportance of each to problem-solving performance.  ...  Traditional methods of information presentation rely on linear or sequential media (e.g., textbooks, sequential databases and lectures).  ...  We are particularly interested, for instance, in the issue of stress in ISD as we have argued that the "stress perspective" can shed revealing light on the behavioral dynamics of ISD (Wastell and Newman  ...
