Title Benchmark 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 system to find one that helps with gathering and transmitting measurement data. Afterwards the document focuses on other necessary tools, which help to measure applications and to store them in a relational database. Two basic approaches will be visualised, which will meet the task of the project. The measurement system has been developed to gather measurements from more than one server, so both approaches base on a client server system. Furthermore, measurement graphs have been developed to compare the load and memory efficiency of different machines and measurement cycles. Finally, the measurement system should help the researchers of the SRB to find possible leaks and ease the further development.
