So What is Application Performance Modeling – Application Performance Modelling is the science of using modeling techniques to forecast application performance. Performance Modelling could be performed with several different objectives in mind, this could include, validation of the solution approach or solution architecture, validation of infrastructure requirements for a given solution approach and possibly impact analysis for change in business workload volumes. Application Performance Modeling can be performed using a combination of statistical, analytical and simulation modeling techniques. Unfortunately there aren’t any standard commercial or Open Source tools out there for performance modeling.
