Characterizing application servers performance becomes hard work when the system is unavailable or when a great amount of time and resources are required to generate the results. In this paper we propose the modeling and simulation of complex systems, such as application servers, in order to alleviate this limitation. Using simulations, and specifically coarsegrain simulations as we propose here, allows us to overcome the necessity of using the real system while taking only 1/10 of the time

Our simulation proposal can be used to obtain server performance measurements, to evaluate server behavior with different configuration parameters or to evaluate the impact of incorporating additional mechanisms to the servers to improve their performance without the necessity of using the real system.
