This paper briefly reviews the data dependent statistical methods useful for computer systems modelling. The techniques are classified according to their applicability toward comparison, tuning and design of computer systems. A review of publications dealing with statistical modeling of computer systems is presented and a comprehensive bibliography is included to provide a useful source of reference toward the present and potential applications of statistical methods for computer system modelling.
