Abstract: In Cloud environments with shared and potentially oversubscribed resources and imposed service levels, user requests have to be scheduled according to their priority and expected response time. For predicting the response time of an incoming user request, the impact of the request on the resource consumption has to be known. Measuring the impact of single user requests on the hardware resource consumption represents a difficult challenge, especially in virtualized environments with hardware threading. The reason is that a large amount of requests are processed on shared resources. Therefore the impact of the whole set must be taken into consideration when building models for the expected resource consumption and response time. We propose a research project to develop a framework for measuring the impact of single user workloads on the resource consumption in a Business ByDesign cloud environment to enable a real-time performance prediction of similar requests.
