Performance Engineering Series – Tuning for Performance - Case Study - 1

Introduction This series of articles will introduce the reader to explore more about Performance Engineering, specifically how to deal with actual issues of the product in a production deployment scenario.   This is the most discussed area and most of the people I have interacted with look forward to getting in to this role and deal with actual issues and make their contribution.   This work requires knowledge and understanding from a multitude of aspects like –        The product design         Usage profile of the product         CPU and Memory and Disk configuration of the platform         Software configuration – Memory settings         Connected software components and their impact The reader is expected to look at the problem holistically to make the best use of the resources being deployed and then tune the application to obtain the required performance.   As this spans a multitude of areas, extensive knowledge of all the areas is necessary and this comes mostly by experie
