CROWNBench: A Grid Performance Testing System Using Customizable Synthetic Workload
Source: BeiHang University
The Grid middleware must be developed iteratively and incrementally, so Grid performance testing is critical for middleware developers of Grid system. Considering the special characters of Grid system, in order to gain meaningful and comprehensive results of performance testing, it is necessary to implement testing on real Grid environment with various types of workload. CROWNBench, as described in this paper, is a system for helping Grid middleware developers to evaluate middleware design and implement using customizable synthetic workload.
