Abstract Three major purposes for evaluating the hardware and softwareperformance of computer systems--selection evaluation, performanceprojection, and performance monitoring--are described. Eighttechniques that have been used or suggested for evaluatingperformance are discussed. Each of these techniques is rated on itssuitability for the three purposes of evaluation. Recommendationsare made on the most appropriate technique for each evaluationpurpose. These suggestions include the development of acomprehensive set of synthetic programs on an industry-wide basisfor selection evaluation purposes. Simulation is recommended as themost suitable technique for performance projection. Finally, anumber of hardware and software monitors are available forperformance monitoring.
