This paper proposes a new model to predict the process execution behavior on heterogeneous multicomputing environments. This model considers the process execution costs such as processing, hard disk acessing, message transmitting and memory allocation. A simulator of this model was developed which help to predict the execution behavior of processes on distributed environments under different scheduling techniques. Besides the simulator, it was developed a suite of benchmark tools in order to parameterize the proposed model with data collected from real environments. Experiments were conduced to evaluate the proposed model which used a parallel application executing on a heterogeneous system. The obtained results show the model ability to predict the actual system performance, providing an useful model for developing and evaluating techniques for scheduling and resource allocation over heterogeneous and distributed systems.
