The aim of this paper is to present some preliminary results and non-extensive statistical properties of selected operating system counters related to hard drive behaviour. A number of experiments have been carried out in order to generate the workload and analyse the behaviour of computers during man–machine interaction. All analysed computers were personal ones, worked under Windows operating systems. The research was conducted to demonstrate how the concept of non-extensive statistical mechanics can be helpful in the description of computer systems behaviour, especially in the context of statistical properties with scaling phenomena, long-term dependencies and statistical self-similarity. The studies have been made on the basis of perfmon tool that allows the user to trace operating systems counters during processing. View Full-Text
