Turning the Knobs - Real world Java, server and application performance tuning

A session at ApacheCon North America 2011

Friday 11th November, 2011

2:00pm to 2:50pm (PST)

Where do you start troubleshooting a performance problem? At the network level, database queries, slow code?
Join Apache Tomcat committer Filip Hanik, Staff Systems Engineer at VMWare, in a informative session on how to tackle and resolve performance problems using a systematic approach.

Performance problems can manifest themselves at all layers of an application and infrastructure. Troubleshooting and tuning efforts are often focused on the components that an administrator or developer feel a core competency in, resulting in less than optimal results. In this session, we will focus our efforts in detecting a problem, identifying the source of the problem and correctly solve the problem with predictable results.

After this session, you will have a better understanding of the process of identifying problems with hardware, network topologies, load balancers, web servers, Java applications and database technologies using tools available in various parts of the system as well as correctly identify the knobs to turn and how to interpret the results of various performance tuning metrics.
