Transaction Tracking in Large Scale Datacenters

The current evolution of over-provisioned, under-utilized datacenters (DCs) to resilient, dynamically reconfigurable, virtualized cloud computing DCs that are managed to meet optimums in terms of performance and energy consumption requires new analysis and benchmarking methodologies, which poses significant challenges in system monitoring and modeling. We present a technical view of business transaction tracking in DCs, and its uses in analytical and simulation modeling.
