Abstract
In cloud computing, software architects develop systems for virtually unlimited resources that cloud providers account on a pay-per-use basis. Elasticity management systems provision these resources autonomously to deal with changing workload. Such changing workloads call for new objective metrics allowing architects to quantify quality properties like scalability, elasticity, and efficiency, e.g., for requirements/SLO engineering and software design analysis. In literature, initial metrics for these properties have been proposed. However, current metrics lack a systematic derivation and assume knowledge of implementation details like resource handling. Therefore, these metrics are inapplicable where such knowledge is unavailable.To cope with these lacks, this short paper derives metrics for scalability, elasticity, and efficiency properties of cloud computing systems using the goal question metric (GQM) method. Our derivation uses a running example that outlines characteristics of cloud computing systems. Eventually, this example allows us to set up a systematic GQM plan and to derive an initial set of six new metrics. We particularly show that our GQM plan allows to classify existing metrics.
