Infrastructure is the backbone of any network, so related performance issues can adversely affect an organization's ability to provide web services and apps to customers and employees. Infrastructure performance issues can also be costly. For these reasons, performance engineers should be hyper-focused on remediating performance at the source. Use this course to learn how you can fix infrastructure-related performance issues. Begin by understanding the role played by various network infrastructure elements, starting with servers, network backbone, and firewalls. Then, explore internet and browser performance, load balancers, and overall infrastructure monitoring. Next, learn about the server performance advisor tool and workload management performance. Finally, see how Little's Law can be used for better optimization of system queues. When you've completed this course, you'll be able to identify and resolve infrastructure performance problems within your organization.
