This page lists selected academic and industrial institutions which have been or are using Kieker for application performance monitoring or architecture discovery. In case you find your institution to be missing on this page, please contact us to let us know for what purposes you are using Kieker.
Kieker is currently maintained jointly by the following research groups from Kiel University and the University of Stuttgart as part of their teaching and research activities, including collaborators from other academic or industrial institutions.
|Kiel University, Kiel, Germany – Researchers from the Kiel University’s Software Engineering Group investigate innovative techniques and methods for engineering, evolving, and operating continuously running software systems (research projects).|
|University of Stuttgart, Stuttgart, Germany – Researchers from the University of Stuttgart’s Reliable Software Systems Group investigate innovative quantitative QoS analysis and forecasting methods for distributed software-intensive systems (research projects).|
Feel free to contact us if you are interested in any aspect of the Kieker framework.
|Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Karlsruhe, Germany – Researchers from the KIT’s Software Design and Quality Group are using Kieker for different purposes, e.g., for detecting and diagnosing performance problems in systematic experiments. We are also collaborating with KIT researchers in the context of the iObserve research project.|
|RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany – Researchers from the RTWH Aachen University’s Software Construction Group are using Kieker for monitoring-based architecture reconstruction in their ARAMIS project on model-based software architecture evolution and analysis.|
|University of Novi Sad, Novi Sad, Serbia – Researchers from the University of Novi Sad were using Kieker for adaptive monitoring of software systems in the context of performance problem detection and diagnosis.|
|University of Würzburg, Würzburg, Germany – Researchers from the University of Würzburg’s Software Engineering Group are using Kieker for extracting performance models.|
|Warsaw University, Warsaw, Poland – Researchers from the Warsaw University employed Kieker for dynamic data acquisition of software architectures.|
|Xi’an Jiatong University, Xi’an, Shaanxi, China – Researchers from the Xi’an Jiatong University used Kieker for discovering architectural structures in software systems and to analyze software call graphs.|
|b+m Informatik AG, Melsdorf, Germany – With b+m, we collaborated in the context of the DynaMod and MENGES research projects. Moreover, Kieker is being used by b+m, e.g., for architecture discovery of large-scale COBOL mainframe systems. Contributions by b+m are part of the Kieker release.|
|CEWE COLOR AG & Co. OHG, Oldenburg, Germany – With CEWE COLOR, we collaborated in the context of the TrustSoft research project. CEWE COLOR provided a JavaEE-based web portal as a case study system for application performance monitoring. Contributions by CEWE COLOR are part of the Kieker release.|
