Geoff Campbell Application Performance and Availability Specialist

Geoff has been working in the field of application performance and availability for many decades, providing evidence-based diagnosis of, and solutions for, all manner of IT performance issues and systems monitoring requirements.

All IT Managers and Directors will be familiar with the shortcomings of modern IT practice when it comes to performance problems and systems monitoring. Performance problems have traditionally been addressed by gathering together a roomful of Subject Matter Experts, and getting each one in turn to look at their component, in the hope that there is a silver bullet that can be applied to make the system suddenly yield performance gains, by changing a variable or increasing the power of a particular server.

In reality, performance problems are much subtler than that, and require an overall view of the system as a whole, building up a profile of the application to see how it behaves, before deciding what the root cause of the poor behaviour might be.  Additionally, this profiling process can reveal many potentially disastrous single points of failure.

Geoff has perfected the process of application profiling, and can expose the root cause of large system performance issues in just a few days.

At the other end of the process, it is important to properly test and monitor system performance.  A good load test prior to final implementation can give assurance that a system will meet and exceed its performance requirements, and a good Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution can ensure that system performance is properly monitored and reported on, and give valuable diagnostic insight into system failures as and when they happen.
