Presenter: Mark B. Friedman
In addition, there are some areas where the YSlow model is proving just a little too simple for the burgeoning complexity of networked-enabled applications developed for the web, the cloud, or both. Using an example of a data-rich ASP.NET application that requires extensive processing at the web server and the back-end database to generate Response messages, the presentation will discuss what additional measurements may be required to solve performance and scalability issues that transcend the diagnostic capabilities of YSlow and similar tools.
