Performance engineering

Torsten Hoefler, Marc Snir
2011 Proceedings of the third international workshop on Large-scale system and application performance - LSAP '11  
We discuss the need for a more principled approach to the management of the performance of applications for petascale platforms and outline some initial successes, related to the Blue Waters project.  ...  by experts to understand the performance of an application after the fact, or to predict its performance on a new system.  ...  We often interpret "peak performance" as meaning the top number of floating point operations the system can perform, and compare this to the actual achieved floating point performance.  ...

Software, performance, or engineering?

Daniel A. Menascé
2002 Proceedings of the third international workshop on Software and performance - WOSP '02  
This paper discusses why Software Engineering (SE) methods often fail to produce software systems that meet their performance requirements.  ...  Five issues are raised: lack of required scientific principles and models in SE, lack of education in performance, IT workforce shortage, single-user and small database mindsets.  ...  A question that comes to mind is whether the term Performance in Software Performance Engineering is redundant?  ...
