     I am sorry. Spelling error ... ;-) ... I just searched on using the 
authors and correct spelling:

     Kerbyson Petrini Pakin

     And got it.  The title is:

     "The Case of the Missing Supercomputing Performance"

     They also have a nice paper on their model for predicting/modeling 
     performance prior to purchase.

     Hope that does it.
