abstract = "Measuring machine performance within a network,
especially with regard to parallelized applications, is
an important issue. In this paper we examine the
problem of computing the efficiency of distributed
computations when executed on a heterogeneous mix of
machines. We propose the calculation of {\em effective
efficiency}, which is based upon the effective number
of processors involved in the computation rather than
the actual number of machines. Our experiments show
that effective efficiency is a more realistic
measurement of heterogeneous processors performance
than traditional efficiency. Effective efficiency can
be used to evaluate various cluster configurations with
respect to a specific application or evaluate
applications with respect to a fixed configuration.",
