Reaching the Holy Grail of Effective Application Performance Testing and Analysis
Vic Soder, Deloitte Consulting LLC

About the Topic

Delivering effective performance analysis and testing services for large complex systems usually requires the alignment of numerous factors and capabilities. Is there a “magic bullet” (or a small number of them) that will ensure a successful application performance program? At a minimum, we will need to define which workload components are critical to analyze, what business volumes will drive those workloads, and what computing resources are important to track.

Once these factors have been identified, we need to identify the processes and tools that will measure and report on the application workloads under study. Integration of business objectives, performance testing tools, and ongoing measurement processes usually presents a challenge. Vic will address aligning performance testing needs with the business mission and supporting performance goals with SLA’s and effective monitoring. He will provide insight to the complexity that more application access channels (multi-media access points) bring to performance testing. Lastly, Vic will present the options for performance testing and monitoring toolsets.

Key Learning Objectives

  • How to identify the workload characteristics to track and analyze
  • How to avoid common performance test planning pitfalls
  • How to realize that there is likely not a single (or small number) of magic bullets that will solve the performance analysis problem, even in modern “as-a-service” environments
