How Rendering is Killing Your Scalability

Measuring rendering at the desktop is all the rage in performance circles, but did you know concentrating on just this one statistic can negatively impact your overall measure of performance?

This presentation will examine the history of measurement at the client during performance tests, techniques in common use within testing and development environments as well as the value of the information derived from common techniques.

Session Takeaways:

  • What are the components of client weight and why Rendering is not as important as you may think?
  • How can you measure the weight of the client both within a performance test and before any formal testing process begins.
  • Why waiting for traditional performance testing is too late in the process to measure client weight.
  • How an obsession with client rendering during testing can sabotage your entire performance effort.
