  • 10 questions
The Performance Engineering Literacy benchmark evaluates your ability to identify, assess, and analyze potential performance issues during software development. You will be measured on your skills to identify potential performance issues in architecture. A learner who scores high on this benchmark demonstrates that they have the ability to embrace a performance engineering culture and work towards it.

Topics covered

  • compare some popular tools for application performance monitoring
  • define database performance monitoring (DPM) and describe common metrics for DPM
  • describe why developing a performance engineering mindset at the organizational level is important
  • detail different architecture patterns for developing high-performance software solutions
  • distinguish different performance engineering approaches, such as elaboration, construction, and transition
  • list considerations when designing the architecture of a high performance software solution
  • list the metrics used to measure application performance
  • name the business consequences of poor performing software
  • outline how root cause relates to performance monitoring and describe some strategies for determining root cause
  • summarize how AIOps can become a performance management solution
