2 10.5 Model Solution Three steps to create a Markov model: 1) Construct the state diagram by identifying all possible states that the modeled system may find itself.2) Identify the state connections(or transitions).3)Parameterize the model by specifying the length of time spent in each state once it is entered(or the probability of transitioning from one state to another within the next time period).
3 10.5 Model SolutionDefinition of “model solution”: To find the long term(i.e., the “steady state”) probability of being in any particular state.This steady state solution is the overall probability of being in each system state.In general, there is one balance equation for each system state.The balance equation for each system state is:flows in=flows outGiven N states, there are N desired unknowns along with N linear equations, which is a straightfoward linear algebra math problem.
5 Random walk through England: Model Solution Let Pi represent probability of being in state i. So we have p1,p2,p3,p4 to represent the four states respectively.So the balance equations for this model are:0.2*p2+0.1*p3+0.3*p4=0.6*p10.6*p1=p20.2*p4=0.3*p30.8*p2+0.2*p3=0.5*p4
6 Random walk through England: Model Solution The final state equations are：0.2*p2+0.1*p3+0.3*p4=0.6*p10.6*p1=p20.2*p4=0.3*p3p1+p2+p3+p4=1The results are:P1=0.2644P2=0.1586P3=0.2308P4=3462
8 Database Server Support: Model Solution The balance equations for the six states are:4*p(1,1,0)+2*(1,0,1)=6*p(2,0,0)3*p(2,0,0)+4*p(0,2,0)+2*p(0,1,1)=10*p(1,1,0)3*p(2,0,0)+4*p(0,1,1)+2*p(0,0,2)=8*p(1,0,1)3*P(1,1,0)+3*p(1,0,1)=6*p(0,1,1)3*p(1,1,0)=4*p(0,2,0)3*p(1,0,1)=2*p(0,0,2)
9 Database Server Support: Model Solution The balance equations for the six states are:4*p(1,1,0)+2*(1,0,1)=6*p(2,0,0)3*p(2,0,0)+4*p(0,2,0)+2*p(0,1,1)=10*p(1,1,0)3*p(2,0,0)+4*p(0,1,1)+2*p(0,0,2)=8*p(1,0,1)3*P(1,1,0)+3*p(1,0,1)=6*p(0,1,1)3*p(1,1,0)=4*p(0,2,0)p(2,0,0)+p(1,1,0)+p(1,0,1)+p(0,2,0)+p(0,1,1)+p(0,0,2)=1Results:p(2,0,0)=0.1391; p(1,1,0)=0.1043; p(1,0,1)=0.2087; p(0,2,0)=0.0783; p(0,1,1)=0.1565; p(0,0,2)=0.3131;
10 10.6 Model Interpretation Example 1:Random Walk Through England Father’s question:What percentage of days is the son actually not drinking in Leeds?Answer: 74%.Interpretation: p1=0.2644=26%. So, the percentage ofdays that the son not drinking in Leedsis: 1-26%=74%
11 Example 1: Random Walk Through England Lake District relative’s question:Once the son finishes a day of kayaking in the Lake District, how long will it typically be before he returns?Answer: 3.33 daysInterpretation: The mean time between entering a particular state (i.e., the state’s “cycle time”)is the inverse of the steady state probability of being in that state.P3=0.2308; cycle time=1/0.2308=4.33;It takes 1 day for the lad to kayak;The time from when he finishes a day of kayaking until he typically starts kayaking again is: =3.33
12 Example 1: Random Walk Through England Policeman’s question:How many days each month can the bobbies expect to see the son driving to London after drinking in Leeds?Answer: 4.76 days.Interpretation:p1=0.2644The days will find the lad drinking in a month: *30=7.93Since the probability that the lad will go state 2 after state 1 is 0.6, so the days that the bobbies can expect to find the lad on the road to London is:7.93*0.6=4.76 days.
13 Example 1: Random Walk Through England Kayak renters’ question:How many visits each month does the son typically visit their shop and typically how long does the son keep their kayak out each visit?Answer: 2.08 visits per month, keeping the kayak an average of 3.33 days each visit.Interpretation:The only way to enter state 3 from another state is from state 4.The days stay in state 4 each month is : *30=10.39
14 Example 1: Random Walk Through England The probability to go to state 3 after state 4 is 0.2, so the lad typically start a new visit to the Lake District 10.39*0.2=2.08 times each month.P3=0.2308The days that the lad can be expected to be kayaking each month is:30*0.2308=6.92The duration of each visit is: 6.92/2.08=3.33
15 Database Server Support: Solution Interpretation
16 Example 2: Database Server Support User’s question:What response time can the typical user expect?Answer: 44.24Interactive Response Time Law: R=M/X0-Z ,(Z=0)X0 ,the throughput of the system, measured at the CPU, is the product of its utilization and its service rate.The CPU is utilized in states(2,0,0),(1,1,0),(1,0,1)The utilization of CPU is: p(2,0,0)+p(1,1,0)+p(1,0,1)=0.4521The service rate of CPU = 6 transactions/minute.X0 =0.4521*6=2.7126R=M/X0-Z=2/2.7126= minutes/ transaction
17 Example 2: Database Server Support System administrator’s question:How near capacity (utilization)of each of the system resources?Answer: Ucpu=0.4521, Ufast=0.3391, Ulow=0.6783These are found as direct sums of the relevant steady state probabilities.Ufast=p(1,1,0)+p(0,2,0)+p(0,1,1)=0.3391Ulow=p(1,0,1)+p(0,1,1)+p(0,0,2)=0.6783
18 Example 2: Database Server Support Company president’s question : If I capture Company X’s clientele, which will likely double the number of users on my system, I will need to also double the number of active users on my system. What new performance levels should I spin in my speech to the newly acquired customers?Answer:The throughput is predicted to go from to ;The response time is predicted to go from to 69.03Now we have 4 users and 15 states.
19 Example 2: Database Server Support Company pessimist’s question: Since I know that the fast disk is about to fail and all the files will need to be moved to the slow disk, what will the new response time be?Answer: seconds/transactionNow we have 2 devices, and 3 states which are (1,1),(2,0),(0,2)The above two examples demonstrate how to use the knowledge of the steady state probabilities to arrive at more meaningful and more useful performance metrics.
20 10.7 Model Assumptions and Limitations Markov Models are quite robust. However, there are Key assumptions and resulting limitations:Memoryless Assumption:It is assumed that all the important system information is captured in the state descriptors of a Markov model. That is, simply knowing which state the system is in, uniquely defines all relevant information.Knowing the current state information alone is sufficient. This is the defining Markov characteristic and any other information is unnecessary as it applies to the system’s future behavior.That is, previous history can be forgotten.
21 10.7 Model Assumptions and Limitations Resulting Limitation:Because everything must be captured in the state descriptor, Markov models are susceptible to state space explosion.Having large state spaces implies additional complexity and a potential loss of accuracy.
22 10.7 Model Assumptions and Limitations Exponential Assumption:The exponential distribution is the only continuous distribution that is memoryless.For example, the service time is 10 seconds, Knowing that the customer has already received 5 seconds worth of CPU time but not yet finished(previous history, which is irrelevant under the Markov memoryless assumption), the average amount of CPU time still needed is again 10 seconds.Markov models assume that the time spent between relevant events, such as job arrival times and job service times, is exponentially distributed.
23 10.7 Model Assumptions and Limitations Resulting Limitation:To mitigate the limitation imposed by exponential assumptions, the concept of phases(or stages) can be introduced.For example, service time can be partitioned into two phases ,each phase being exponentially distributed with an average of five seconds.However the price is again a potential state space explosion since the state descriptor must now contain this additional phase information.
