Undergraduate Enrollment: The enrollment must be made as Special Student Page Link: –
Fundamental techniques for analysis and understanding of computer system performance. Measurements. Simulation. Analytical modeling.
Presenting fundamental concepts, techniques and tools for computer system performance analysis. After successful completion of the course, the students are expected to (i) be able to properly plan and carry out the performance evaluation of a computer system (of any kind and at any level, i.e., hardware and/or software), as well as (ii) adequately report obtained results.
Evaluation will be based on the following criteria: attendance and participation in discussions (10%), homework assignments (10%), an individual student project (40%), and a final exam (40%). The conversion of the weighted average to grades will be as follows:
