  • Virtualized Infrastructure Measurement and Management

    To enable timely identification of virtualized infrastructure impairments, cloud consumers and application suppliers should assure that adequate service measurements of virtualized infrastructure service quality are in place. This chapter considers service quality measurements across the MP0 service boundary. Service performance across the application's resource facing service (MP0) boundary can be measured?>below?> the boundary by the infrastructure service provider, but that presents risks, which are also considered in the chapter. A section on cloud consumer measurement options discusses how infrastructure service performance across MP0 can also be measured by the application. The chapter then considers impairment measurement strategies, discussing techniques to measure each virtualized infrastructure impairment. In conclusion, the chapter discusses managing virtualized infrastructure impairments, where it reviews the tactical and strategic mitigations that cloud consumers can take if infrastructure performance is below expectation.

  • Introduction

    This introductory chapter of Service Quality of Cloud-Based Applications presents an overview of the contents in the subsequent chapters of the book. The book methodically analyzes the impacts of cloud infrastructure impairments on application service delivered to end users, as well as the opportunities for improvement afforded by cloud. It considers both the new impairments and opportunities of virtualized resources offered to applications deployed on cloud and how user service quality experienced by end users can be maximized. It approaches application service quality from the end users perspective while considering standards and recommendations from NIST, TM Forum, QuEST Forum, ODCA, ISO, ITIL, and so on. The book provides application architects, developers, and testers guidance on architecting and engineering applications that meet their customers?> and end users?> service reliability, availability, quality, and latency expectations. The work is organized into three parts: context, analysis, and recommendations.

  • Example for Using the FSSM

    This chapter presents a worked‐out example with its functional requirements, counting table, explanation of the counting, and output results, for demonstrating the usage and presentation of the output results of the FSSM. The example is of a mini‐version of the FSSM called Mini‐FSSM Application Software Development (ASD), and it demonstrates how the FSSM methodology is applied for the functional software size measurement, effort estimation, and performance indication. The textual description of the class structure which is required in the example 'Mini‐FSSM ASD' is presented under the requirement identifiers LD1 through LD3. The functionality description of the example 'Mini‐FSSM ASD' is presented under the requirement identifiers FS1 through FS43. For the Mini‐FSSM ASD example for which the Functional Requirements Specifications are presented, the counting details are presented in the chapter. Final output results of the Software Component's Measurements, Software Component's Feature Measurements, and Software Performance Quality Indicators for the mini‐FSSM example are presented in graphical form.

  • Application Capacity Management as an Inventory Management Problem

    This chapter explores how just-in-time inventory management principles can be applied to lean capacity management of cloud-based applications. Traditional application service production chain reviews the factors that traditionally drove application service providers to adopt a supply-driven or push model of capacity management. Elasticity and demand-driven capacity management considers how cloud eliminates the factors that drove adoption of supply- driven, push capacity management and enable application service providers to adopt more agile demand-driven, pull-capacity management models. There are significant parallels between running an application service business and operating a number of trendy retail stores. Thinking about intangible application capacity as tangible retail merchandise that must be managed as inventory is a useful way to identify important aspects of application capacity management. Inventory management is a critical factor for a retailer, just as capacity management is a critical factor for an application service provider.

  • Capacity Management

    This chapter considers the service quality risks of online, elastic capacity growth and degrowth of cloud-based applications. Practical aspects of elasticity operations, including overload controls, are discussed. The chapter concludes with a review of the risks of rapid elasticity. Well-designed applications detect the overload condition when offered workload exceeds the online engineered service capacity and gracefully reject (or?>shape?>) some traffic, such as by returning appropriate?>TOO BUSY?> errors to some user requests and rescheduling low priority activities (e.g., measurement reports) until the overload condition has ended. Virtualization makes it far simpler and faster to instantiate new virtual machine (VM) instances to host online application capacity than with traditional hardware resources. Persistent storage is often factored out of traditional application server configurations into external storage arrays, network attached storage, or external database servers.

  • Testing Considerations

    This chapter considers the incremental testing appropriate to assure that application service quality meets expectations when deployed on cloud infrastructure. It begins by framing the context of this testing, then discusses testing strategy, simulating virtualized infrastructure impairments and test planning. Suppliers must design applications to be tolerant of the variations that will be experienced when the application is deployed across different cloud service providers?> infrastructures. This configuration variability leads one to consider several strategy topics when framing service quality test plans. Best practice is for the service quality test campaign for a cloud-based application to include aspects of most or all of the following test types: service reliability and latency, impaired infrastructure testing; robustness testing; endurance/stability testing; application elasticity testing; upgrade testing; disaster recovery testing; and extreme coresidency testing.
