Systems Performance Engineering (Hosted at the Hub)

The Chartered Institute for IT, Jersey is pleased to invite you to our fourth event of 2015: Systems performance engineering.

Abstract: This session will cover the principles governing systems performance when designing and trouble-shooting systems and their associated infrastructure. There are a wide range of issues to be considered, especially those affecting throughput, response times, scalability and availability. Performance is not something that can always be dealt with by system tuningĀ or simply buying bigger hardware. Performance issues frequently result in systems failing in some form or other, which affects availability and causes disruption to service. Understanding the characteristics that govern performance helps us to design and implement better systems.

Come along and join in the discussion.
