Sensitivity Analysis of Flexible Provisioning

Stein, Sebastian, Payne, Terry R. and Jennings, N. R. (2007) Sensitivity Analysis of Flexible Provisioning s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


This technical report contains a sensitivity analysis to extend our previous work. We show that our flexible service provisioning strategy is robust to inaccurate performance information (when the available information is within 10% of the true value), and that it degrades gracefully as the information becomes less accurate. We also identify and discuss one particular case where inaccurate information may lead to undesirable losses in highly unreliable environments.
