In this recording from VividCortex's live webinar on September 27, 2016, Baron Schwartz leads an exploration of the subject of percentiles and how they're used for performance monitoring.
Percentiles help engineers observe and improve their applications much more deeply. But the usage of percentiles in metrics and monitoring systems is often limited by what's supported in the monitoring tool, leaving lots of benefits on the table.
Check out the on-demand recording to learn:
- What percentiles are.
- How they work. (And why they might not work the way you think.)
- The top categories of ways you can put them to work.
In each category you'll learn real problems you can solve with percentiles, the best ways to approach those problems (such as different types of visualizations) and the pitfalls. You'll come away from this webinar with a deeper understanding of what's possible and a finely honed eye to spot opportunities and mistakes in percentile usage.
