Evaluation of grades

The module is not graded (only study achievements)..


Contents

  • Methods of experimental design
  • Workload modeling
  • Statistical evaluation of results
  • Fundamentals of simulations: random number generators, simulation engine
  • Working with the simulation environment

Competencies / intended learning achievements

The students acquire the competence to carry out the performance-oriented analysis of distributed systems in an orderly and planned manner using practical examples. For the performance evaluation of distributed systems, both measurements of real systems and simulator investigations are used.

Upon successful completion of the module, students will be able to

  • determine basic and extended requirements for a system solution in discussions with users,
  • independently define additional requirements for a system solution according to heuristic criteria
  • divide agreed and self-chosen tasks into subtasks and to work on them together in a cooperative manner,
  • estimate and plan the project effort in detail and to use resources in a goal-oriented way,
  • document and manage work results comprehensively and accurately and to present results
  • present a specialist lecture using suitable media to a heterogeneous specialist audience,
  • lead and moderate a well-founded discussion on the chosen topic based on a technical lecture,
  • assess their own scope for action and decision-making and the associated responsibility and, if necessary, obtain targeted information, define priorities, derive tasks, develop solutions and monitor progress
  • recognize misunderstandings and role conflicts in communication situations at an early stage and to contribute to conflict resolution,
  • argue goal-oriented in controversial discussions and to deal with criticism objectively,
  • participate constructively and actively in heterogeneous working groups,
  • represent independent points of view and, if necessary, points of view that differ from others in a very comprehensible way and to argue plausibly and convincingly.
  • lead, instruct and motivate a working group frequently
  • lead heterogeneously composed groups responsibly and to represent work results to third parties.
  • develop their own professional, methodological, technological, interdisciplinary, social and personal skills independently.
