The behavior of the multiprocessor system is described as a continuous Markov chain, and a reward rate (performance measure) is associated with each state. The distribution of performability is evaluated for analytical models of a multiprocessor system using a polynomial-time algorithm that obtains the distribution of performability for repairable, as well as nonrepairable, systems with heterog
