OS Performance Benchmarking

Modern Operating Systems consist of a number of components that despite having different purposes strongly influence each other. Unfortunately, existing OS profiling systems concentrate on some particular OS component or profile only CPU or I/O activity. Therefore, the information collected is often not sufficient to discover and easily understand possible OS performance problems. In this project we investigate techniques that allow to capture, visualize, and analyze statistical information about the OS operation as a whole, as well as several OSs that communicate over the network.
