The application range supported by these distributed systems or distributed computing is very large and the common applications that fall under this category are Wireless sensor networks, Telecommunication networks, Internet systems, peer to peer networks, routing algorithms, distributed database management systems and network file systems.

Among all these applications, there are many autonomous entities working together to achieve a common objective and the performance of each and every system should be considered to estimate the overall performance of the distributed system.
