Virtual systems and virtualization technology is taking the momentum nowadays in data centers and IT infrastructure models for resources management. Performance analysis of such systems is very invaluable for enterprises but yet is not a deterministic process. Single workload benchmark is useful in quantifying the virtualization overhead within a single Virtual Machine (VM), but not useful in whole virtualized environment with multiple isolated VMs and varying workload on each can't capture the system behavior. The authors need a common workload model and methodology for virtualized systems so that benchmark results can be compared across different platforms.
