The Military Communications and Information Systems Conference is one of Australia’s key conferences for discussing solutions to defence problems, bringing together key representatives from the military, government, industry and universities. CDIT will be presenting two papers at this conference, discussing our work on System Execution Modelling and how we obtain early performance information for software systems and, working with colleagues from the Centre for Defence Communications and Information Networking, in using our systems to explore a simplified model of a combat management system.
The first paper we will be presenting explains our approach to performance prediction, exploring how we use models of CPU and data workload behaviour to get early insight into how software will perform above real-world deployment scenarios of specific middleware/OS/hardware combinations. We explain how we use real-world data scenarios to explore the performance of systems, and new techniques for visualisation of the distributed system to help understand the performance information.
In the second paper, we demonstrate, with our colleagues, how our techniques can be used through an applied example of a combat management system. This paper provides a more detailed example of what performance models look like, and how different deployments can be used to explore different deployment scenarios.
