It's important to optimize any application before launching it on a large scale, but this is particularly true of modern Mobile Applications and Web Applications, as they may potentially experience viral (also known as "web-scale") growth. Characteristics of these applications is "bursty traffic" and "sudden bandwidth needs" as at particular times of day, week, month or year users flock to the site; while other times it may sit idle or sparsely used. As a result there is a high need to rapidly scale modern applications to peak demand, and where practical/possible, be able to scale capacity back down in order to save on costs. The perfect optimization pattern is thus one which can support the highest possible demands but cost the least amount of money by only scaling up when necessary, and scaling down resources in all other occasions.

Key Result Area (KRA) is a metric representative of individual performance towards an organizational goal.




Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are types of events, transaction, or simply actions taken upon a thing, which are theorized to be beneficial to measure. The purpose of the measurement is most useful when it is representative of progress towards achieving a specific goal.

The following are the most commonly used general KPIs across all sizes and types of companies:

  • Bounce rate
  • Page view time (aka. time-on-page, but also worth measuring cumulative time-on-site)
  • Content view time (time spent on specific or cumulative on all content within a page)
  • Content completions (i.e. video/audio/ad complete views)
  • Conversion rate
  • Purchase rate
  • Subscription rate
  • Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR)
  • Cost of Goods Sold (COGS)
  • Average Revenue Per Unit (ARPU)
  • Cost Per Acquisition (CPA; single event)
  • Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC; repeat events)
  • Customer Life-Time Value (LTV)
  • Customer attrition/loss rate (Churn)
  • Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR)

Some E-Commerce specific metrics include

  • Page Load time
  • API request/response time:
  • Average order value
  • Products added to cart
  • Products ordered (depth/breadth)
  • Total Revenue per Product line
  • Products Browsed
  • Total pages visited
  • Frequency of Page visits
  • Total visits by all users (per page)
  • Click path
  • Purchase path (also known as "conversion funnel")

Advertising metrics:

  • Return On Advertising Spend (ROAS)

[62] [63] [64] [65]

Social Media has its own set of interaction-focused metrics:

  • View count
  • Open rate (by target segment)
  • Share rate
  • Comment count
  • Like/vote count (and relates "+/-" trends)
  • Subscribe rate
  • Notification opt-in rate

Key Performance Parameters (KPP) are the individual aspects of a KPI that can be experimented with to measure their impact on the KPI.


KPM is the measurement of a KPI (i.e. # of an event, % ROI or rates, $ amount, etc).

A large part of software or hardware optimization is monitoring, where performance is analyzed over time, and errors are logged, flagged and shared with team members, ideally in real-time.

Performance is broadly the capabilities of a system to meet the demands of end-users. It can be tested, reported on, and measured over time, via various types of Performance Testing. [107] [108] [109] [110] [111] [112] [113] [114] [115] [116] [117] [118]

Application Performance Management (commonly abbreviated APM, wherein the "M" could also refer to "Monitoring") is the monitoring and/or management of performance and availability of software applications. APM strives to detect and diagnose complex application performance problems to maintain an expected and minimally acceptable level of service. APM is "the translation of IT metrics into business value" in this sense, with aims of minimizing errors, minimizing loading times, managing resource usage (CPU, memory, storage, etc) and maximizing efficiency as it pertains to the monitored applications in order to deliver business products and services with a high degree of availability, reliability and without technical impediments to customers. APM can be accomplished through Performance Testing, real-time server monitoring, and constant database/application tuning.

Log Analysis



Splunk is a leading Log Analyzer tool.



OverOps (originally Takipi) is a comprehensive solution that offers:

  1. Log Analysis
  2. Debugging
  3. Profiling
  4. Line-of-code Error detection/traceability
  5. Pre-emptive problem notications (so your team finds out about bugs before customers)

OverOps adds a link to every error in your logs directly to its cause and enables you to see DEBUG log statements and call stacks for any log error directly from the JVM, even if they were not written to the log file.

Business Performance


Drum-Buffer-Rope (commonly abbreviated DBR) is a manufacturing execution methodology based on the fact the output of a system can only be the same as the output at the constraint of the system. Any attempt to produce more than what the constraint can process just leads to excess inventory piling up.[citation needed] The method is named for its three components. The drum is the physical constraint of the plant: the work center or machine or operation that limits the ability of the entire system to produce more. The rest of the plant follows the beat of the drum. Schedule at the drum decides what the system should produce, in what sequence to produce and how much to produce. They make sure the drum has work and that anything the drum has processed does not get wasted.

The buffer protects the drum, so that it always has work flowing to it. Buffers in DBR provide the additional lead time beyond the required set up and process times, for materials in the product flow. Since these buffers have time as their unit of measure, rather than quantity of material, this makes the priority system operate strictly based on the time an order is expected to be at the drum. Each work order will have a remaining buffer status that can be calculated. Based on this buffer status work orders can be color coded into Red, Yellow and Green. The red orders have the highest priority and must worked on first since they have penetrated most into their buffers followed by yellow and green. As time evolves this buffer status might change and the color assigned to the particular work order change with it.

Fullstack Optimization

YSlow performance criteria

YSlow was a long-time industry leader in performance optimization for the web, along with YUI compressor for CSS/JS minification. Since it was tailored to HTTP 1.1/1.2 specs, it is slowly getting replaced by other tools more optimized for HTTP/2.0 as the once stacked, but now fledgling Yahoo! development team struggles to support legacy tools and open source projects (sunsetting most since their acquisition by Verizon[235]).

  1. Minimize HTTP Requests
  2. Use a Content Delivery Network
  3. Avoid empty src or href
  4. Add an Expires or a Cache-Control Header
  5. Gzip Components
  6. Put StyleSheets at the Top
  7. Put Scripts at the Bottom
  8. Avoid CSS Expressions
  9. Make JavaScript and CSS External
  10. Reduce DNS Lookups
  11. Minify JavaScript and CSS
  12. Avoid Redirects
  13. Remove Duplicate Scripts
  14. Configure ETags
  15. Make AJAX Cacheable
  16. Use GET for AJAX Requests
  17. Reduce the Number of DOM Elements
  18. No 404s
  19. Reduce Cookie Size
  20. Use Cookie-Free Domains for Components
  21. Avoid Filters
  22. Do Not Scale Images in HTML
  23. Make favicon.ico Small and Cacheable
