Synopsis: This is a short, occasionally funny, book on how to solve and avoid application and/or computer performance problems. I wrote it to give back the knowledge, insights, tips, and tricks I was given over the last 25 years of my computing career. It shows practical ways to use key performance laws and gives well tested advice on how (and when) to do performance monitoring, capacity planning, load testing, and performance modeling. It works for any application or collection of computers because it teaches you how to decipher whatever meters they give you and how to discover more about those meters than the documentation reveals. This book covers the things that will always be true no matter what technology you are using. It will continue to be useful 20 years from now when today’s technology, if it runs at all, will look as quaint as a mechanical cuckoo clock. There is no complex math required; yet it allows you to easily use some fairly advanced techniques. Simple arithmetic, and a spreadsheet program, is all that is required of you. Lastly, it helps with the human side of performance. It shows you how to get the help you need and how to present your findings (good or bad) all the way up to the CIO level.

From the Back Cover: This is a short, occasionally funny, book covers the four main tools of performance work: Performance Monitoring, Capacity Planning, Load Testing, and Modeling.
For a performance book, this one has several unique features:

  • It works for any collection of computers you have. It teaches you how to use whatever meters they give you and how to discover more about those meters than the documentation reveals.
  • It only requires the most simple math on your part, yet it allows you to easily use some fairly advanced techniques to do important work quickly. 
  • It is full of practical advice from someone that has been there and done good work on live systems and websites all over the world. 
  • It is buzzword free and written in a clear, conversational style.
