pp. 555-563
R.D. Schlichting, Department of Computer Science, University of Arizona
A technique is presented for estimating the performance of programs written for execution on fail-stop processors. It is based on modeling the program as a discrete-time Markov chain and then using z-transforms to derive a probability distribution for time to completion.
Index Terms:
z-transforms, Fail-stop processors, fault-tolerant computing, Markov chains, performance evaluation
