Dr. Gunther is a member of the AMS, ACM, CMG, IEEE, SAGE-AU, SIGMETRICS and USENIX.Review:
From the reviews:
"The literature of computer performance analysis is generally composed of two groups: heavy theoretical treatises and performance cookbooks. ... Surprisingly, this book is exceptionally well balanced between theory and practice ... . I strongly recommend this book, both for the novice practitioner and for the experienced performance analyst. Both can extract a vast array of benefits, ranging from understanding the theoretical concepts of performance modeling, to building for themselves a powerful modeling tool ... ."
