JAX 2015 Session

The dark art of Performance Tuning – From Newts to Newton

JAXenter Editorial Team

Performance tuning is still considered to be a dark art that could not be easily formalized, scheduled into a predictable workflow.

However, there are some common patterns all performance engineers could follow in their investigations. This session describes some approaches and tools to analyze modern application performance problems in Java. During the session a number of best practices are presented that eliminate the need for magic to help you meet your performance goals.
