Rails Performance Optimization
Been doing some research and I found some good articles for Rails performance optimization. For those interested in such things, I thought I'd share:

Enjoy. And please, share some other links if you have em.
Notebook excerpts
Some time ago I met with another tester here in Indy to provide advice on performance testing. A while ago I published some articles on the notes from that meeting, and a couple months ago I published some scans of my notes from the discussion.

I don't see many examples of notes, so I thought I'd link to them here as well:

  • The first page was an interactive attempt to understand the problem.

  • The second page was an attempt to understand the goals of the performance testing.

  • The third page was an attempt to document the initial usage model.

  • The fourth page was an attempt to illustrate how I would approach organizing my work and how to present results to the various stakeholders.

  • The fifth page was a description of a performance degradation curve and how to use it.
