Resolving bottlenecks

Let's get started with resolving bottlenecks. In this section, you'll learn why bottlenecks occur and how to go about resolving them. We'll start by exploring examples of bottlenecks and then learn how tuning can be used to resolve them. Finally, you'll learn methods of testing and benchmarking to use in tandem with tuning to detect bottlenecks iteratively.

Bottlenecks occur when resources don't match demand. On a hardware level, this can involve networking. If you have multiple servers, for example, a bottleneck can occur when the internal network is exceeded by the demand on the network between the servers, or if the network path from your servers to the client is exceeded. A bottleneck can also occur due to storage ...
