Abstract : This paper describes an RADC in-house distributed systems evaluation project. As part of the project, a list of attributes were first identified that are necessary and/or desirable in a distributed system. A set of metrics were then designed that would suitably measure distributed system performance for a subset of the attributes identified. The metrics were then implemented using the Cronus Distributed Computing Environment. The results obtained for this implementation are presented. Keywords: Benchmarking, Computational throughput, Distributed operating systems.
