Analysing the performance of offline applications (and introducing DDMetrics)
To optimise a program for execution speed, you first find out which parts are running the slowest, and secondly you optimise those slowest parts. This talk focuses on the former.
How do you find the slowest parts? There are a few approaches, which I’ll talk about in this presentation. I’ll also present DDMetrics, a different approach to collecting (performance) metrics of applications, taking ideas from the world of service monitoring.
