Customer goodwill and employee productivity are severely impacted by slow applications, making performance a crucial element of modern networking. Performance engineering uses ongoing testing and monitoring to eliminate these potential issues. One aspect of this work is managing system architecture performance. With the help of this course, learn to recognize potential architectural performance issues. Begin by understanding what performance engineering is, the role of the performance engineer, and the similarities and differences between performance architects and performance engineers. Then, explore the scope of performance engineering, common activities undertaken by performance teams, and how performance engineering and performance testing differ. Finally, delve into activities commonly undertaken by performance engineers, well-known performance architecture issues, and best practices for effective performance engineering. By the end of the course, you'll have a good grasp of the role of performance architects and system architecture in performance engineering.
