About the Seminar

Performance is a critical aspect of software in many domains, such as high-performance computing or embedded systems, where resources are limited. When it comes to assessing the performance of software systems, performance engineers face a multitude of problems to solve, some of which are:

  • How should we configure the software system to be performance-optimal (compile-time vs. run-time arguments)?
  • How should we analyze the software system to understand and predict performance behavior (white-box vs. black-box)?
  • How often should performance measurements be run (e.g., with every commit or before a new release)?
  • How should we benchmark software systems (hardware, workloads, etc.)?

In this seminar, we address and discuss possible solutions and trade-offs, theoretically, by addressing the state of the art in research and, practically, by planing, preparing, and performing our own performance experiments

Registration

Registration for the seminar is mandatory. To distribute students among the available seminars offered by the computer science department, you have to select your preferences for a seminar or a proseminar on the central registration platform for seminars and will be automatically assigned to a seminar according to your preferences.

If you are assigned to this seminar, for organizational reasons, you have to sign up both in the course registration form that will be given above and in the LSF (seminar, proseminar). Deadlines for the LSF (HISPOS) registration will be posted in the LSF (HISPOS) portal. Registration is possible up to three weeks after the topic assignment / kick-off.

Due to the current situation with SARS-CoV-2, this course will be held online. The topic assignment will take place on Thursday, 15.04.2021, 12:15 PM. Further information will be provided via e-mail after the registration.
