This chapter discusses the roles of benchmarking and monitoring of service performance in Cloud computing. The chapter talks about the effects of cyber attack on Cloud service provisioning. It presents a survey on the proposed solutions and technologies to face such issues. The chapter describes benchmark results and products from different points of view. It offers a brief critical analysis of proposed solutions, and outlines the open research problems. Evaluation and monitoring of provided services allows for an accurate assessment of system performance, workload distribution, overloads, bottleneck, underused resources, and malicious resource exhaustion, which have special effects in the Cloud because of the pay-per-use business model.
