Software Performance and Scalability: A Quantitative by Henry H. Liu

By Henry H. Liu

Software program functionality and Scalability grants a really good ability set that might aid you layout and construct functionality into your items with quick, measurable advancements. Complemented with real-world case reports, it truly is an fundamental source for software program builders, caliber and function coverage engineers, architects, and executives. it truly is anideal textual content for college classes concerning machine and software program functionality overview and will even be used to complement a direction in machine association or in queuing idea for upper-division and graduate computing device technological know-how scholars.

A network might be as simple as two computers connected through a crossover cable or as complicated as the entire Internet. Between these two extremes, there are many different types of networks whose names end with “AN,” such as LAN, (local area network) and WAN (wide area network). Network Latency. Network latency is a different concept from network bandwidth. It measures how long it takes for a network packet to travel from point A to point B. Typically, network latency is less than 1 ms on a LAN, about 40 ms on a WAN, and 400 ms across continents.

Host adapter or host bus adapter bridges the computer’s internal system bus to its I/O bus to enable communications between a processor and its peripheral disk storage devices. Note that most enterprise storage adopts external SAN (storage area network) storage for storing and 24 HARDWARE PLATFORM processing enterprise data. In this case, a host bus adapter card is needed to connect the host computer with the remote external SAN storage through a fiber-channel switch. Enterprise applications typically adopt external SAN storage to store business critical data.

To some extent, modern computers are as close to Turing machines as modern men are close to cavemen. 1 Concept of a Turing machine. 2 VON NEUMANN MACHINE 7 as Turing proposed seven decades ago. To convince you that this is true, here is a comparison between a Turing machine’s basic elements and a modern computer’s constituent parts: † † † Tape—memory and disks Head—I/O controllers (memory bus, disk controllers, and network port) Table þ state register—CPUs In the next section, I’ll briefly introduce the next milestone in computing history, the von Neumann architecture.
