Identifying the location of performance bottlenecks is a non-trivial challenge when scaling n-tier applications in computing clouds. Specifically, we observed that an n-tier application may experience significant performance loss when there are transient bottlenecks in component servers. Such transient bottlenecks arise frequently at high resource… CONTINUE READING
