Performance engineering activities occur at all stages of the system development life cycle. Performance engineers are tasked with continually evaluating performance systems to ensure they meet their non-functional requirements. There are several tools and techniques involved in this evaluation process. Use this theory-based course to gain a solid knowledge of what's involved. Explore various performance engineering metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs). Discover testing techniques and the importance of ensuring reproducible test results. Examine the benefits of visualization, learning how it's used to spot anomalies. See how KPIs can be used to identify bottlenecks. And lastly, find out what to consider when building a performance engineering toolbox. When you're done, you'll have the know-how to plan your performance engineering evaluation activities.
