The Performance Analysis Process.

Rob Pooley, Jane Hillston

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A perspective is offered for viewing the history, and projecting the future, of tools and environments for performance analysis. This is derived by attempting to capture performance analysis as a process and then considering how this process may be supported efficiently from the user point of view. It is argued that such a conceptual modelling approach will enable developers to minimise the load on users in making use of the wide and growing range of tools and techniques on offer.
