Presentation: "The War Against Latency"

Track: Java Now

Time: Tuesday 14:45 - 15:45

Location: Lille Sal

Abstract: It used to be that if we had a performance problem we looked at the code or used an execution profiler to find execution hotspots. Nowadays it is rare that an application is architected to run on a single piece of hardware. This and other changes in hardware have resulted in latency becoming one of the biggest impediments to performance. The change means that execution profiling is rarely helpful. In this talk we will explore sources of latency and what we can do to find them. We will also explore how virtualization can affect latency.
