Abstract: Analytic models based on Queueing Networks and Stochastic Petri Nets are used in this paper with two purposes: to evaluate the performance of supercomputers in multiprogrammed environments, and to compare, performance-wise, conventional supercomputer architectures with a novel architecture proposed here. It is shown, with the aid of the analytic models, that the proposed architecture is preferable performance-wise over the existing conventional supercomputer architectures. A three-level workload characterization model for supercomputers is presented.

Keywords: supercomputer performance; supercomputer architecture; multiprogramming environment; queueing network; stochastic net.
