Nowadays, software systems have to fulfill increasingly stringent requirements for performance and scalability. To ensure that a system meets its performance requirements during operation, the ability to predict its performance under different configurations and workloads is essential. Most performance analysis tools currently used in industry focus on monitoring the current system state. They provide low-level monitoring data without any performance prediction capabilities. For performance prediction, performance models are normally required. However, building predictive performance models manually requires a lot of time and effort.
