Survey on Performance-aware DevOps Launched By SPEC RG

Friday, November 11, 2016 11:38

This survey is part of a larger project aiming on building best-practice infrastructures for Performance-aware DevOps.

Software developers, IT operators, and researchers know quite well how to handle performance in classic environments involving a strict separation between development (Dev) and operations (Ops). DevOps aims to merge these silos and aims to automate and accelerate the delivery and operations processes. Most of the time, performance does not receive enough or even any attention. In our opinion, this is primarily due to the fact that present performance management practices are not integrated and adapted to typical DevOps processes, especially in terms of automation and holistic tool support.

We would like to find out how performance concerns are currently addressed in industrial DevOps practice and plan to integrate the impressions and results in our blueprint. Furthermore, we would like to know whether classical paradigms still dominate in your organization, when performance evaluations are conducted, what metrics are relevant for you, and what actions are applied after a performance evaluation.

This survey is an activity of the as part of a larger project on building an open best practice reference infrastructure for performance-aware DevOps. The survey results will directly influence the reference infrastructure.
