Performance Architecture

The performance architecture describes how user, application, device, and (existing) network requirements for performance (capacity, delay, and RMA [reliability, maintainability, and availability]) will be met within the planned network. Developing requirements for performance is a key part of the analysis process, and this component architecture is where they are supported.

The performance architecture is the newest of the component architectures, and it is rapidly evolving to include many new mechanisms to achieve network performance. And, as you will see in this chapter, this architecture is highly dependent on the other component architectures for success.
