Abstract
A simulator has been developed to evaluate the performance of the Mayo/IBM PACS. The simulation model includes both the hardware and the software of the entire system. Using this model, the simulator is able to accurately predict the performance of alternative network configurations, device characteristics, and usage patterns. The significance of this capability is that performance-related issues can be conveniently explored prior to the design, installation, or modification of the PACS. Information about potential bottlenecks, resource utilization, and expected response times can be obtained while changes are still relatively easy to make. This paper presents the objectives and design of the Mayo/IBM PACS simulator. A simple archive task is used to illustrate the major features of this unique tool.
