Barely a day passes without new headlines reporting another cyber attack, policy violation, or data breach. Secretly, we breathe a sigh of relief that it happened to someone else, but most of us know that we’ll all eventually feel the impact in some capacity.
In this paper we present an introductory analysis of throughput scalability for update intensive workloads (such as measured by the TPC-C or TPC-W benchmarks) and how that scaling is limited by serialization effects in the software-hardware combination that comprises any platform.
In this online article Dr. Gunther digs down into the UNIX kernel to find out how load averages (the “LA Triplets”) are calculated and how appropriate they are as capacity planning metrics.
This is the second in a two part-series where we explore the use of UNIX load averages in performance analysis and capacity planning.
This is an unexpected Part 3 to the discussion about the UNIX load average metric answering the question of where the weight factor comes from.
