ABSTRACT: Administrators and developers usually work only in their respective worlds, but performance is one area where collaboration can get you a HUGE boost. Come watch administrator Francie Tanner-Whitlock and developer Jamie Magee work in concert to tackle topics such as: sizing server hardware against application needs, view indexing strategies, data archiving, configuration settings, agent profiling, and tools such as DDM, PerfMon, and NRPC monitoring. There is plenty of cross-level knowledge for both administrators AND developers, including what questions to ask of the other to make servers and applications perform in tune and end up with happy end users.
HISTORY: For three of the past four Lotuspheres, Kevin Marshall and I have done a popular session on Application Performance Tuning. It did well, and even earned top ranked feedback a couple of times. I still update and present various versions of this topic for developers around the US and Europe, including at five major events this year, as it has tremendous value to developers. But increasingly, the content has slowly evolved toward a blend of both developer and system administration knowledge.  This is because, in reality, performance tuning is a collaboration between the two.  This session provides a different angle on these popular topics, focusing on the synergy between a developer and an administrator in live performance tuning of common issues.
SESSION INFO: Past performance topics at Lotus conferences fall into either the administrator or the developer realm. Yet there often remains outstanding questions as to whether a given performance problem warrants a development fix or a server configuration change. This session is the debut of performance best practices presented in a dual administrator / developer format. For example, server hardware is often sized based on an admin's 'guesstimate' without adequate consideration to/knowledge of the types of applications running on those servers. This session supplies the necessary tools, tricks and questions to ask to adequately size your server's RAM, CPU, and storage, as well as know when add hardware vs fixing application designs. For when problems do surface, we'll address how to best deal with resource intensive applications from both a developer and an administrator perspective while showing before and after results. Together, these two popular speaker/consultants offer performance best practices in a practical and tangible way that all developers and administrators can relate to.
