Evolve your approach to Application Performance Monitoring by adopting five best practices that are outlined and explored in this e-book, brought to you in partnership with BMC.

In traditional development, there is a standard protocol for performance testing that centers around load testing. According to a blog post at Internet Performance Expert,  the traditional way of thinking – even the concept of tradition in a constantly-evolving field – needs to be set aside.

There also needs to be better integration among the performance testing team and developers to better facilitate communication.
