Performance Evaluation Process Algebra

PEPA Eclipse Plug-in

A common experiment to perform on a PEPA model is to vary a rate and see how this affects a chosen performance metric. This is known as sensivity analysis.

This example evaluates the model eleven times, with the value of the rate parameter r varying from one to eleven in steps of one. Repeating a calculation while varying a parameter like this is known as parameter sweep.
