This is the first practical treatment of the design and application of feedback control of computing systems. MATLAB files for the solution of problems and case studies accompany the text throughout. The book discusses information technology examples, such as maximizing the efficiency of Lotus Notes.
This book results from the authors' research into the use of control theory to model and control computing systems. This has important implications to the way engineers and researchers approach different resource management problems. This guide is well suited for professionals and researchers in information technology and computer science.
