Experiments: Resource profiles


We tested the model hypotheses on resource consumption (see section 3.3) and the software tools implementing the profiling methodology (see section 3.5) in a set of experiments. As example application platform we chose the widely used Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) of Sun Microystems (see Sun Microsystems, n.d.c). J2EE is a platform specification and a branding initiative that provides a unifying umbrella for enterprise-oriented Java technologies1. We conducted the experiments in close cooperation with our industrial partner, the BMW Group. They provided the data center infrastructure as well as an example application system. We could therefore analyze the viability of concept and software under realistic conditions and evaluate the integration into existing IT Service Management processes (see chapter 6).
