The software rejuvenation is one of the most effective preventive maintenance technique for operational software systems with high assurance requirement. In this paper, we propose the workload-based software rejuvenation scheme for a server type of software system, and develop stochastic models to determine the optimal software rejuvenation schedules for some dependability measures. In numerical examples, we evaluate quantitatively the performance of workload-based software rejuvenation scheme and compare it with the time-based rejuvenation scheme.
