USING A WORKLOAD INFORMATION REPOSITORY - Mapping Businesses and Applications to Servers and Processes

Tim R. Norton

Abstract

Workloads are often defined differently within an organization, depending on the purpose of the analysis, making it difficult to compare analysis from different points-of-view. WIRAM (Workload Information Repository for Analysis and Modeling) is a preliminary implementation of a database repository to collect application and system information about workload groupings and their relationships. This information can then be used as a component of the ITIL CDB to define consistent workloads from business products to computer systems, regardless of the analysis or modeling tools used or the objectives of the analysis.
