Description: The purpose of this STSM is to develop a benchmarking framework specifically designed to assess, in a unified testing environment, the effectiveness/efficiency of elastic scaling techniques for DTM platforms, and, in particular, their ability to tackle the problems of designing an automatic elastic scaling mechanism. The resulting benchmarking framework, which we called Elas- ticDTMBench, integrates and extends a number of open-source projects, and is also distributed as an open-source project that will be made shortly publicly available on the web. By adopting an open-source licensing scheme and a flexible, and easily extensible design, our hope is that ElasticDTMBench can become a reference framework for the researchers active in this challenging emerging area.
