Performance evaluation of complex systems and services

(Daniele Tessera)

My research focus is performance evaluation of complex systems and services.
I have been working for many years on workload characterization, performance evaluation and debugging, and benchmarking 
of parallel systems and applications.
More recently, my research interests have focused my on characterization of Web dynamics and cloud computing services.
