GS/LJC Joint Session - Gil Tene from Azul presents "How NOT to Measure Latency"

GS/LJC Joint Session - Gil Tene from Azul will presenting "How NOT to Measure Latency"

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 talk discusses common pitfalls encountered in measuring and characterizing latency, while using concrete real-world examples. It demonstrates and discusses some false assumptions and measurement techniques that often lead to dramatically incorrect reporting and covers ways to do a sanity check and correct such situations. CTO and co-founder of Azul Systems Gil Tene will discuss the coordinated data omission problem, and ways to work around it, and will introduce and demonstrate how simple and recently open sourced tools can be used to improve and gain higher confidence in both latency measurement and reporting.

*Delegates will need to bring a photo-id*
