Many software tools have been proposed for the purpose of performance analysis and measurement on software executables. The results produced by such tools are visually displayed based on run-time characteristics of software executables without suggesting the fitness of executables at the operational environment. This is because run-time characteristics of an executable are not static for every running instance even in the same platform and same machine configuration. In this paper, an efficient method has been introduced to estimate fitness of software executables to the operational environment by incorporating software reliability growth models.
