Mission Statement

DevOps CycleThe mission of the DevOps Performance Working Group is to foster and facilitate research in combining application performance management (APM) and model-based software performance engineering (SPE) activities for business-critical application systems. The goal of the working group is to better integrate these activities through experience sharing, constructive feedback, agreement on definitions, specification of metrics, and dissemination of novel methods, techniques, and tools for quantitative evaluation.

General Topics of Interest

Topics of Interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Performance and workload model extraction
    • Dynamic/adaptive instrumentation techniques
    • Combination of static and dynamic analysis
  • Data feedback between development (Dev) and operations (Ops)
    • Interchange formats to exchange metrics and models
    • Process models to better integrate SPE and APM activities
  • Runtime performance management techniques
    • Reactive/proactive problem detection, diagnosis, and resolution
  • Load testing
  • Benchmarks for SPE and APM methods, techniques, and tools


  • Landscaping of performance model extraction approaches
  • Knowledge transfer between participating organizations
    • Establish and document best practices
  • Developing new methods, techniques, and tools for SPE and APM integration
  • Common case studies to compare approaches for:
    • Performance and workload model extraction
    • Runtime performance management
    • Load testing
