Performance optimization in Linux: tales from the trenches
Every customer loves when her site is fast and responsive, so optimization of complex and not-so-complex applications is a part of my daily job. Performance optimization is not that easy but it's always fun. Linux already has a big number of various performance optimization tools and not all of them have the same scope and ease of use. Of course, presenting just a list of tools without real world examples is not that useful, so expect enough tales from my own experience.
