IM 102: Diagnosing Performance Issues

November 11, 2012 21:09:29.485

Welcome to episode 102 of Independent Misinterpretations - a Smalltalk and dynamic language oriented podcast with James Robertson and David Buck.

This week David and James talk about a sometimes tricky subject - diagnosing application performance issues. It's often not as simple as just firing up the profiling tools provided by your toolset..

I often find that profiling tools often don't point me to the performance problems in my code. I find myself frequently doing the "manual instrumentation" that David describes in the podcast. Nice interesting thoughts in this podcast.
