Parameterizing performance models for multithreaded enterprise applications requires finding the service rates offered by worker threads to the incoming requests. Statistical inference on monitoring data is here helpful to reduce the overheads of application profiling and to infer missing information. While linear regression of utilization data is often used to estimate service rates, it suffers erratic performance and also ignores a large part of application monitoring data, e.g., response times. Yet inference from other metrics, such as response times or queue-length samples, is complicated by the dependence on scheduling policies.
