How NOT to Measure Latency with Gil Tene

How NOT to Measure Latency with Gil Tene

Time is money. Understanding application responsiveness and latency is critical not only for delivering good application behavior but also for maintaining profitability and containing risk. But good characterization of bad data is useless. When measurements of response time present false or misleading latency information, even the best analysis can lead to wrong operational decisions and poor application experience. This presentation discusses common pitfalls encountered in measuring and characterizing latency. It demonstrates and discusses some false assumptions and measurement techniques that lead to dramatically incorrect reporting and covers ways to do a sanity check and correct such situations.


Gil Tene is CTO and co-founder of Azul Systems. He has been involved with virtual machine technologies for the past 20 years. Gil pioneered Azul's Continuously Concurrent Compacting Collector (C4), and various managed runtime and systems stack technologies that combine to deliver the industry's most scalable and robust Java platforms.

Gil is a frequent speaker at technology conferences worldwide, and an official JavaOne Rock Star. He was named JCP member if the year in 2013, and one of the Top 50 Agenda Setters in the technology industry by in 2006. Prior to co-founding Azul, Gil held key technology positions at Nortel Networks, Shasta Networks and at Check Point Software Technologies, where he designed ground breaking traffic management solutions. He architected OSs at Stratus Computer, HA solutions at Qualix/Legato, and served as an officer in the Israeli Navy Computer R&D unit.

Gil holds a BSEE from The Technion Israel Institute of Technology, and has been awarded 33 patents in computer-related technologies.

    We have found the room, it's not too difficult. Come into the main building, take the stairs to the left one flight down, turn right through the doors and right again, follow the corridor round and you will see us on the right, if you get lost let me know.

    I have experience in Algo Trading and I'm very interested in low latency design. This sounds very interesting.
