Description Nowadays, a lot of data are produced every second and they need to be processed immediately. Processing such unbounded streams of data is often run in a distributed environment in order to achieve high throughput. The challenge is the ability to predict the performance-related characteristics of such applications. Knowledge of these properties is essential for decisions about the amount of needed computational resources, how the computations should be spread in the distributed environment, etc. In this paper, we present performance analysis of distributed stream processing applications using Colored Petri Nets (CPNs). We extend our previously proposed model with processing strategies which are used to specify performance effects when multiple tasks are placed on the same resource. We also show a detailed conversion of the whole proposed model to the CPNs. The conversion is validated through simulations of the CPNs which are compared to real streaming applications.
