A New Approach for Estimating Per-Transaction-Type Resource Consumption

In a middleware environment, various types of transactions are processed simultane-ously. In such an environment, it is very important to know the amount of resources necessary for processing each type of transaction. Such data can be used both for re-source planning and bottleneck identification. This report proposes a new approach to estimate the per-transaction-type resource consumption in a real production environ-ment. Two types of execution logs are collected, and resource consumption is estimated by solving simultaneous equations based on these logs.
