A High Performing Scalable Architecture to Instrument Software Applications

By Anand Kumar

Software applications have become larger and more complicated in design. This increased complexity and scale in software application design present difficult challenges in asserting software quality. Software instrumentation is an effective solution in measuring and improving a software application’s quality. By examining the data gathered by the various instruments, it is possible to determine the cause for the software application failure and a causal analysis of the context in which the failure happened can lead to improvement in the overall software quality. In this paper, we discuss about a generic instrumentation for software applications which can be used to assert software quality. We also discuss about architecture of this generic instrumentation. We illustrate the capabilities of this generic instrumentation using couple of case studies.

Anand is currently a Senior Scientist at TCS Innovation Labs, Pune with research interests in Architecture, Processes, Systems, and Services. He has two decades of experience in the IT industry spanning across programming, architecture, and research.

Messaging Protocols for Real Time System Data Sharing

By Deepti Nagarkar

An introduction to protocols primarily used to share data for Real time systems along with a brief comparison with each other. Realtime systems have different requirements with respect to data delivery. There are protocols explicitly designed to deliver according to these specifications. Protocols analyzed are – DDS, STOMP and AMQP.

Deepti is currently with Persistent Systems Performance Engineering Group. She has over 6.5 years experience in J2EE across a number of projects and domains. Deepti has done her B.E. Computers from Pune University.

Guerilla Capacity Assessment using USL

By Prajakta Bhatt

Traditional Capacity Assessment exercises come with their own challenges. This paper aims to cover how these challenges can be surpassed using Guerilla techniques, originally proposed by Dr. Neil Gunther. It introduces the concept of scalability and shows how Universal Scalability law (USL) can be employed to model scalability of the Systems realistically, combining both Hardware/Software aspects together. USL aids in arriving at maximum point of throughput, beyond which the system performance degrades. This paper, shows how this theoretical limit can be used to predict capacity of a live database server through a detailed case study.

Prajakta is working as a Technology Architect, in NFRs technical focus group that specializes in Performance Engineering Activities at Infosys. She has over 9.5+ years of experience in software development, project management and Performance Engineering across various domains and technologies of applications. She has done M.S. (Software Systems) from BITS, Pilani and B.E. (CSE) from Govt. College of Engineering, Aurangabad.

About CMG Pune

Computer Measurement Group is a not-for-profit, worldwide organisation of IT professionals committed to sharing information and best practices focused on ensuring the efficiency and scalability of IT service delivery to the enterprise through measurement, quantitative analysis, and forecasting. CMG Inc, which is headquartered in New Jersey, USA was setup in 1975 and it now has more than 25 US and International Chapters.

CMG India has been recently setup with the objective of networking performance engineering and capacity management professionals across India. Large IT systems across India need to process millions of transactions per day and CMG India will allow for the experts to share their experiences and learn from one another. The facilitation will be done through regional events across major cities, an annual conference, and posting technical articles on this site.
