Networking, I/O, and Serialization

Most of this book focuses on optimizing computational aspects of application performance. We have seen numerous examples, such as tuning garbage collection, parallelizing loops and recursive algorithms, and even by coming up with better algorithms to reduce runtime costs.

For some applications, optimizing only the computational aspect results in limited performance gains, because the performance bottleneck lies in I/O work, such as network transfers or disk accesses. In our experience, a considerable portion of performance problems encountered in the field is not caused by an unoptimized algorithm ...
