All Systems Go! Becoming a “Systems-Smart” Generation

Linda Booth Sweeney

As adults, it is easy to miss this simple truth: a cow is a complex, living system, in the same way that the human body, a family, a classroom, a community, an organization, or an ocean is. Living systems, unlike a collection or “heap of stuff ,” share similar characteristics.

Waiting time, load factor, and queueing theory – why you need to cut your systems a bit of slack

Erik Bernhardsson

In all these cases, it turns out that running a system at a lower throughput can yield dramatic cycle time improvements. You can simulate the whole system doing something like this: query_enqueued = numpy. Basically you are forced to run the system at a really low load factor to have some leeway. The system described above is called an M/G/1 using fancy notation. I’ve been reading up on operations research lately, including queueing theory.

Here at Cloudera, we know how hard it is to get reliable performance benchmarking results.

Systemic Breakdown

The Programmer's Paradox

We can start with the distinction between formal and informal systems. Formal systems are such because the underlying rules are rigid. All things must follow the rules (or they are invalid and no longer within the system). Informal systems on the other hand often involve people, although not always. Informal systems are not rigorously constrained. They are fairly simple systems, but their behavior is fairly complex. Informal systems are everywhere.
