As dependence on database management systems and Web servers increases, so does the need for them to run reliably and efficiently—goals that rigorous simulations can help achieve. Execution-driven simulation models system hardware. These simulations capture actual program behavior and detailed system interactions.

The authors have developed a simulation methodology that uses multiple simulations, pays careful attention to the effects of scaling on workload behavior, and extends Virtutech AB's Simics full-system functional simulator with detailed timing models.
