Performance is one of the most relevant quality attributes of any IT system. While good performance leads to high user satisfaction, weak response times lead to loss of users, perceived unavailability of the system or unnecessarily high costs of network or compute resources. Therefore, various techniques to control and improve the performance of IT systems have been developed, ranging from online monitoring and benchmarking to modeling and prediction. Experience shows, that for system design or later optimization, such techniques need to be applied in smart combination.
Therefore, the “Symposium on Software Performance” brings together researchers and practitioners interested in all facets of software performance, ranging from monitoring to modeling and prediction. The symposium is organized by two already established user groups: for the first time, the Kieker (http://www.kieker-monitoring.nethttp://kieker‐monitoring.net) and the Palladio (http://www.palladio‐simulator.com) communities will have a joint meeting in form of this symposium. Kieker is a well‐established tool and approach for monitoring software performance of complex, large, and distributed IT systems. Palladio is a likewise‐ established tool and approach for modeling software architectures of IT systems and for simulating their performance.
The symposium will include invited talks from practitioners and researchers in the field of software performance, including but not limited to conapproaches employing Kieker/Palladio. In addition, we welcome contributions from the field. Hence, this call for participation also acts as a call for contributions to be presented at the symposium.
In general, we seek reports on applications and extensions of Kieker/Palladio in academic, scientific, or industrial contexts. Submission are thought for (but not limited to) plans, ongoing work, or results on:
Application of Kieker or Palladio in projects
Wish lists of tool features
Combined applications of Kieker and Palladio
Case studies of bottleneck searches and resolutions
Software performance patterns and anti‐patterns
Thoughts and experiences on the influence of the software architecture on software performance
Extraction and calibration of performance models
Performance in virtualized environments
Performance in trade‐off with other quality attributes, e.g., security or reliability
