AWARENESS OF QUEUES book
Delays that are caused by the sharing of hardware and software resources can greatly affect performance if they are not addressed adequately during development. Before the reader is frightened off by the thought of lots of complex mathematical formulae let me say that this chapter is a queueing theory free zone. There are plenty of books that go into great detail on the subject for those who have a particular interest in the subject. The simple objective here is to make the reader aware of queues and their effect on performance, particularly a network of queues. Where time permits, modeling techniques, using analytic or simulation modeling tools, can be useful in identifying and understanding delays that are attributable to queueing.
