Developers need to build software with performance in mind, QA needs to test for performance, and management needs to ensure projects meet performance requirements. Needless to say, organizations need software professionals with performance expertise. Use this course to learn what's involved in performance monitoring and analysis. Explore what's involved in performance monitoring. See how process monitoring fits into the overall field of process engineering. Study application performance monitoring (APM) and database performance monitoring (DPM). And examine some of the most popular tools for both. As you advance, monitor a web application and database using performance monitoring tools. Find out how to identify root causes of performance issues. And investigate the basic components of software performance analysis. Upon completion, you'll be able to start analyzing and monitoring software performance throughout the development process.
