Modern high end mobile devices employ multi-core platforms and support diverse distributed applications due to increased computational power. A brisk performance evaluation phase is required after the application modelling to evaluate feasibility of new distributed applications on the multi-core mobile platforms. GENESYS modelling methodology which employs service-oriented and component based distributed application design has been extended for this purpose such that application level services are refined to platform-level services allowing mapping of GENESYS application architecture to workload models used in performance evaluation. This results in easy extraction of application workload models, reducing the time and effort in the performance evaluation phase needed for architectural exploration. This article presents the way brisk performance evaluation of distributed GENESYS applications is achieved by employing extended GENESYS distributed application architecture. The approach is experimented with a case study. UML2.0 MARTE profile, Papyrus UML2.0 modelling tool and SystemC were used for modelling and simulation.
