    sclability test

    Hello,

    I was wondering if there is a way to quantify scalability in software engineering.

    Lets say you have a process which outputs a file. I want to see how this process scales when I run it in parallel.

    I am currently doing,
    1 thread(s) = 60 seconds
    2 thread(s) = 60 seconds
    4 threads(s) = 63 seconds

    etc..

    Is there a way I can model this? I was thinking of the BigO notation, but are there any applications in statistics I can use for something like this? Such as r-square?

    Need more detail about what you are trying to do.
