Understanding Latency: Pitfalls, Lessons and Tools

Gil Tene, CTO and Co-founder, Azul Systems demonstrates and discusses some common pitfalls, false assumptions and problematic measurement techniques that lead to dramatically incorrect reporting results, and explains how these false measurements naturally occur using the most common measurement methods and tools in use today.


Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise 2014: Understanding Latency: Pitfalls, Lessons and Tools

Speaker: Gil Tene, CTO and Co-founder, Azul Systems

Understanding application responsiveness and latency is critical not only for delivering good application behavior but also for maintaining profitability and containing risk. However, good characterization of bad data is useless. If measurements of response time present false or misleading latency information, even the best analysis can lead to wrong operational decisions and poor application experience. In this talk, Gil Tene (CTO, Azul Systems) demonstrates and discusses some common pitfalls, false assumptions and problematic measurement techniques that lead to dramatically incorrect reporting results, and explains how these false measurements naturally occur using the most common measurement methods and tools in use today. He discusses the coordinated data omission problem, and ways to work around it, and introduces and demonstrates how simple and recently open sourced tools can be used to improve and gain higher confidence in both latency measurement and reporting.
