Abstract: A method for performance evaluation of degradable multiprocessor systems with random failure and repair using hierarchical generalized stochastic Petri net (GSPN) model is presented. The GSPN model can be decomposed into a hierarchical sequence of aggregated subnets; they can be solved in isolation and their results combined to get the solution of the hole system. A multiprocessor system is analyzed which is intractable using conventional solution techniques.
Keywords: performance analysis; degradable multiprocessor system; performance evaluation; generalized >stochastic net.
