Hey, My Web App's Slow. Where's the Problem?
Whatever client or server technology you may be using, when your web app is slow, it can be maddening because it's not always obvious where the performance problem is. Is it on the client? on the server? On the network between? Is it all parts of the request or only some? If it's slow on the client, is it slow in all clients (if you support many)? And is it slow for everyone using the app? If it's slow on the server, is it slow in the web application server you may be talking to, if any? Or might it be in the web server? Or the database server? In this session, veteran troubleshooter Charlie Arehart will help you consider these various possible performance pain points, and he'll share tools which may be available to you (many free, some built-in, some commercial) that may offer just the answer to the questions above. You can't solve a problem until you really understand it, and with the concepts and tools discussed here, you will be well on your way to identifying and resolving the real source of your web application performance problems. No particular experience is required. Familiarity with web application development with any client and any server technologies will be sufficient to appreciate the techniques and tools to be shown.
