Presented by William Louth, this event will help you to learn about the challenges in performance measurement of low latency high throughput applications in particular how best to derive the greatest amount of relevant measurement data whilst limiting instrumentation and measurement overhead to a minimum or within predefined budgets. Attendees will also learn of the differences between metrics and meters, correlation and causation, as well as activities (cause) and resources (effect). During the talk the various approaches to application performance management will be covered including call sampling, call/event tracing, transactions monitoring, activity/resource metering as well as signaling a much more efficient means of eventing and logging that also includes aspects of complex event processing.

The talk will also discuss in detail the challenges in performance measurement and management of Scala applications with regard to mapping of scala constructs to actual bytecode execution and the lack of explicit and direct traceability to such. Also presented will be techniques to measure and model performance and resource consumption across asynchronous calls within actor libraries and task/messaging libraries.

- The session will touch on the following topics: instrumentation, measurement & metering, dynamic profiling, behavioral traits, systems & signals, control theory, complex event processing

- The material will consist of presentation slides and demos as well as some live coding and troubleshooting.

Who should attend:

- The presentation is targeted at experienced developers in particular those often requested to help monitoring, manage, control and troubleshoot production applications.

Bios:

William Louth is the CTO at JINSPIRED BV and the product architect of its innovative application performance management and resource metering solution - JXInsight/OpenCore. JXInsight/OpenCore is the first low latency intelligent activity based costing/metering (ABC/M) solution that offers enterprise, grid and cloud computing software and services a unified model and runtime solution in the management of performance, cost, capacity and service quality. He has previously worked for Inprise/Borland on JavaEE/CORBA technologies and has provided technical advisory consultancy to many of the leading JVM & IT management vendors in the area of performance management, software runtime visualization, application deployment modeling and federated CMDB design. William spent his early engineering years in the telecommunication industry developing GSM billing engine software as well as least cost routing (LCR) systems for Europe wide traffic at AT&T.
