Abstract

It is necessary to predict the future of a capacity in the system which a large-scale calculation system transaction like a financial institution generates for the stability of a system. Prediction of the transaction generating number of cases was estimated by a past actual result value and a past annual rate. Moreover, the multiplication of the value of the path length calculated for every subsystem was carried out to future number-of-cases prediction, and prediction of the rate of CPU use estimated it to be it. Subjects are the accuracy of the prediction transaction number of cases, and the accuracy of path length. As for the actual number of cases of a peak day, the element "monthly" and "according to day of the week" is added. Therefore, in consideration of an "annual rate", prediction was difficult. Moreover, the rate of CPU use and path length were difficult to estimate it for every subsystem estimating in many cases from the test result of the MIPS value and the rate of CPU use of a machine etc. in the acting-before-the-audience system which has already worked. The point using the statistics technique of computing "the characteristic index of a prediction day" and the constant of a path length element by "multiplex regression analysis" to a capacity management and the prediction technique has this invention. a result -- a future prediction value -- the system improved sharply Moreover, the input of these tools of analysis is only the past actual result value. Therefore, it contributes also to curtailment of the work load spent on analysis compared with the technique searched for from the conventional test intention.
