Performance of cloud applications is critical for its user acceptance. Resource management and scalability play important role in cloud performance. As a result, cloud environments fundamentally aim for resource consolidation and management. Also, it is challenging for the cloud service providers to allocate the cloud resources dynamically and efficiently. Through proper management of cloud resources, the scalability issue can be mitigated significantly. Given the significance of resource management in assessing the cloud application performance, we focus on evaluatingthe cloud performance considering resource utilization aspects of a cloud application. In this paper, we attempt to identifythe key actors in cloud environment with respect to resource management and design UML model for it. Also, we predict the performance of sample cloud application through SMTQA simulation.
