PDQ Added To My Tools Page...

Added PDQ to the tools page of my website. PDQ is covered in Neil Gunther's book "The Practical Performance Analyst", which is an excellent text covering Erlang's concept of queuing theory and its practical uses in capacity planning and performance tuning. The description on my site is as follows:

PDQ (Pretty Damn Quick) is a queuing model solver, not a simulator. The queuing theory models discussed in Chapters 2 and 3 of The Practical Performance Analyst are incorporated into the solution methods used by PDQ. This saves you the labour of implementing this code each times you construct a queuing model and allows you to concentrate on the accuracy of your model rather than the accuracy of the solutions.
