Before you can begin to determine anything about the performance of a computer system, you must decide what aspects of the system are interesting and useful to measure. In this course, you will learn about the common metrics that are used to quantify a system's performance, the characteristics of a good metric, the meaning of speedup and relative change, and how to measure the fundamental metric of performance -- time.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
This course is based on the author's book, Measuring Computer Performance: A Practitioner's Guide. The listed price for this course has been reduced to compensate for the cost of purchasing the required chapter in PDF format online through ebooks.com.
