The Art Of Performance Engineering

Learn Performance Optimization techniques to ensure high performance of your application.

About the Book

Performance Engineering is the core of all software products!! By improving the performance of their application, an enterprise can provide better user experience which leads to increased revenue. The cause of most performance issues is bottlenecks around CPU Utilization, Memory Access and Input/Output devices. There are methods to identify different bottlenecks from the codebase and tips to improve performance in Web Server (IIS, Apache), Application Server (Jboss, Weblogic, Websphere, Tomcat, .Net) and Database Server(MSSQL, Oracle) coupled with Client side optimization.

In this book, we will be giving tips on how to optimize your application and its various bottlenecks to obtain best performance for better user experience.
