SHARPE, (Symbolic Hierarchical Automated Reliability and Performance Evaluator) is a tool for specifying and analyzing performance, reliability and performability models. It has been installed at over 250 sites. It is a toolkit that provides a specification language and solution methods for most of the commonly used model types for performance, reliability and performability modeling. Model types include combinatorial one such as fault-trees and queuing networks and state-space ones such as Markov and semi-Markov reward models as well stochastic Petri nets. Steady-state, transient and interval measures can be computed. Output measures of a model can be used as parameters of other models. This facilitates the hierarchical combination of different model types.
