Title Performance Measurement System for a Storage Resource Broker
Abstract This dissertation deals with the design and development of a measurement system for a "Storage Resource Broker" (SRB). The SRB is a client/server middleware that provides an interface for connecting to heterogeneous data resources over a network. The aim of the project is to enable long-run measurements of the SRB server and standard applications. The document starts with comparing two state-of-the-art monitoring systems to find one suitable for gathering and transmitting measurement data. Afterwards, the document focuses on other necessary tools, which help to monitor applications and to store the measurements in a relational database. Two basic approaches will be visualised, which will meet the task of the project. The developed measurement systemcollects data frommore than one server, which means the system can handle multiple connections at the same time. Furthermore, it is able to display history diagrams to compare the load and memory efficiency of different machines and measurement cycles. Finally, all the features of the measurement system help the researchers of the SRB to find possible leaks and ease the further development.
