Explicitly considering the software architecture supports efficient assessments of quality attributes. In particular, Architecture-based Performance Prediction (AbPP) supports performance assessment for future scenarios (e.g., alternative workload, design, deployment, etc.) without expensive measurements for all such alternatives.
However, accurate AbPP requires an up-to-date architectural Performance Model (aPM) that is parameterized over factors impacting performance like input data characteristics. Especially in agile development, keeping such a parametric aPM consistent with software artifacts is challenging due to frequent evolutionary, adaptive and usage-related changes.
The shortcoming of existing approaches is the scope of consistency maintenance since they do not address the impact of all aforementioned changes. Besides, extracting aPM by static and/or dynamic analysis after each impacting change would cause unnecessary monitoring overhead and may overwrite previous manual adjustments.

In this article, we present our Continuous Integration of architectural Performance Model (CIPM) approach, which automatically updates the parametric aPM after each evolutionary, adaptive or usage change. ... mehr
