As a result, it is not straightforward to establish a direct comparison on the benefits offered by our research with these techniques. 1. 2 Control-Theoretic Approaches to Computer Systems As computer systems become increasingly complex through advances in hardware and software technology, traditional approaches to providing performance guarantees have become inefficient. In recent years, control engineering principles used successfully in real-world applications such as mechanical and electrical systems and process control have emerged as promising solutions to meet performance control challenges such as real-time scheduling, network bandwidth control, and power management in complex computer systems.

Alternatively, a model may be represented in the state–space format whereby the inputs, outputs, and state variables are expressed as vectors and the differential and algebraic equations are written in matrix form. This format provides a convenient and compact way to model and analyse systems with multiple inputs and outputs. The state–space representation of a discrete time-invariant dynamic system model is described by the equations below. 12) where x(k) is the state vector, y(k) is the system output, u(k) the system input, and e(k) the stochastic error.

We hope that this progression along with the system modelling principles and fundamental considerations related to 3D rendering will enable readers to appreciate the value of this framework and acquire the necessary knowledge for its implementation. Current research in rendering workload characterisation [16,17] and rendering time estimation [18,19] strives to profile the attributes of rendering without providing a systematic way to control the process. Often, the user is expected to arrive at some form of a primitive control strategy based on profile information.
