Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Structured to follow the software life cycle, Patterns for Performance and Operability provides advice and examples-based instructions at every phase. You can read it from start to finish or go directly to those chapters that interest you the most. Whatever approach you choose, you will learn:

How to:

Define and document comprehensive non-functional requirements for any software system

Define scope and logistics for non-functional test activities

Execute non-functional tests and report results clearly and effectively

Patterns for defensive software designs in common software scenarios that promote operability and availability

Implement the right level of reporting, monitoring, and trending for highly available production software systems

Patterns for:

Software designs that support simpler and more efficient operation in a production environment

Software design that support high-performance and scalability

Strategies and Techniques for:

Techniques for managing and troubleshooting during a production crisis

Strategies for resisting project pressure to compromise on quality or completeness of non-functional activities in the software cycle

Book News Annotation:

Structured to follow the software lifecycle, this book gives advice on incorporating performance, operability, and other non-functional requirements into a project development lifecycle. Focus is on design, testing, and certification of applications for their target production environments. The first eight chapters focus on the planning through deployment phases. Later chapters examine common problems and project monitoring. A final chapter looks at impediments to good design that can limit non-functional requirements. The audience for the book includes anyone who has a lead architectural, design, or business role on a systems project, including those working on the project, project sponsors, or those directly benefiting from the results. Although the book is accessible to beginners and experts alike, it assumes some knowledge of the basic project development lifecycles and concepts of both functional and non-functional requirements. Ford is a consultant specializing in software systems for the financial services industry. The book is distributed in the US by Taylor & Francis.

Synopsis:

Your customers rely on enterprise software to be productive. Customers appreciate that downtime and performance that falls short of expectations are critical problems. Overlooking these requirements when designing IT projects can stop new application implementations in their tracks, something you and your company cannot afford. Patterns for Performance and Operability gives you practical, hands-on software development and testing techniques that you can use to ensure your customers enjoy fast, highly available software rather than suffer through bugs and system crashes. The authors illustrate the importance of performance and operability using real-world examples, define non-functional activities in detail, and provide an overview of the main concepts.

Synopsis:

It is a scenario too familiar to the software industry: new software is delivered to customers and suddenly unforeseen and devastating bugs cause everything to crash. Patterns for Performance and Operability is filled with practical, hands-on software development and testing techniques to ensure customers enjoy properly running software rather than complain about bugs and system crashes. The book explores in-depth nonfunctional design and testing that too many software professionals overlook to their peril. It shows how to avoid a range of real world user problems, unexpected data permutations, and unforeseen input that lead to software failure. Designers, developers and testers can refer to the book's catalog of defensive software patterns to guarantee high-quality performance.
