Synthetic vs. Real World Benchmarking

How much do you really understand how your workload changes based on the time of day, background processing, user load, or which application module is in use? There's no better way to understand your workload - BEFORE it goes to production - than to replay and benchmark it. In this hour, we'll discuss the process using both synthetic (when applicable) and real-world capture tools to test your environment to help you look like a rockstar. <BR><BR> John Sterrett is a Group Principal and Sr. Consultant at Linchpin People.
