Abstract: Logging and analysis of resource utilization information may be implemented, for example, to achieve intelligent capacity management of information management system resources. In one implementation, resource utilization information may be collected from one or more subsystems or processing engines of an information management system, and analyzed to gain insights into system performance. System capacity management may be implemented using collected resource utilization information, for example, to achieve dynamic management of system resources.

Abstract: This article reviews the literature on strategic capacity management concerned with determining the sizes, types, and timing of capacity investments and adjustments under uncertainty. Specific attention is given to recent developments to incorporate multiple decision makers, multiple capacity types, hedging and risk aversion. Capacity is a measure of processing abilities and limitations and is represented as a vector of stocks of various processing resources, while investment is the change of capacity and includes expansion and contraction. After discussing general issues in capacity investment problems, the article reviews models of capacity investment under uncertainty in three settings: The first reviews optimal capacity investment by single and multiple risk-neutral decision makers in a stationary environment where capacity remains constant. Allowing for multiple capacity types, the associated optimal capacity portfolio specifies the amounts and locations of safety capacity in a processing network. Its key feature is that it is unbalanced, i.e., regardless of how uncertainties are realized, one typically will never fully utilize all capacities. The second setting reviews the adjustment of capacity over time and the structure of optimal investment dynamics. The article ends by reviewing how to incorporate risk-aversion in capacity investment and contrasts hedging strategies involving financial versus operational means.
