One of the most vexing issues faced by an enterprise architect is assuring the performance of mission-critical applications. In many cases, this task encompasses both application and infrastructure issues, including design and coding standards, interactions with other applications, operating system and systems performance, and network design. These problems with performance often arise unexpectedly, putting pressure on practitioners to address the immediate issues, and re-architect systems and software to ensure that those and similar issues don't present roadblocks to expansion of both users and applications.
This session examines enterprise- and application-architecture issues surrounding enterprise application performance. You will look at the causes of poor performance, how these causes manifest themselves in individual applications, and how they can be traced back to root causes. You'll learn a methodology for monitoring application and infrastructure performance during the application development life cycle, so you can more easily identify and address common problems.
