In theory as well as in practice, contention analysis emerges as a new, interesting approach to both system and user tuning. The prototype was found to be low in cost and very simple both in its implementation and in its use. It provides affluent information that directly relates the users and resources associated at each contention point. The ability to provide contention information for each individual user in the system was found to be extremely valuable.
