Today's Book: Capacity Planning for Web Services

While we can find only little research on capacity planning, practioners actually do this. A book by Daniel Menasce et al. gives us a good insight for:
  • Web services: protocols, interaction models, and unique performance, reliability, and availability challenges
  • State-of-the-art capacity planning methodologies
  • Spreadsheets implement the solutions of the models presenteed in the book
  • Specific issues and workloads associated with HTTP and TCP/IP protocols
  • Benchmarking current performance at system and component levels
