Abstract. Since e-Commerce has become a prevalent form of doing business, the workload posed to e-Commerce websites, especially the global ones, increases continually on a daily basis. In order to maintain high QoS levels and
keep pace with ever-increasing service demands, e-Commerce systems have to exhibit high performances. Within the paper, we propose a modeling framework for performance evaluation of generic e-Commerce systems based on the utilization of Client/Server Interaction Diagrams (CSIDs) and the class of NonMarkovian Stochastic Petri Nets (NMSPNs). CSIDs are used for capturing the interaction between the client and particular servers for specific HTTP requests, corresponding to specific e-Commerce functions that e-Customers invoke during online shopping sessions. As an example, we represent the CSID for the
SEARCH function using NMSPNs, thus providing a performance model suitable for estimating the speedup gains of e-Commerce systems that utilize multicore CPUs and parallel processing of HTTP requests within their web servers.
