This book offers valuable insights and methodologies in the world of performance testing and engineering. Sadly, there aren't many books on the subject in the market. This one fills a much wanted gap.
Author talks about best practices and methodologies and even offers concrete metrics to measure, monitor and tune. A good discussion of all layers (Web -Web Application server and Database) along with all industry leading tools (+some more) is presented. The book is full of tiny bits of useful real-world information that alone are worth the cost. In all, it is a very comprehensive compilation of best practices and methodologies as it relates to the performance testing, engineering and tuning.
