The Obsession with Metrics

The Agile Manager

In recent decades, what I call “metric fixation” has engulfed an ever-widening range of institutions: businesses, government, health care, K-12 education, colleges and universities, and nonprofit organizations. Metric fixation consists of a set of interconnected beliefs. The second is that making such metrics public (transparency) assures that institutions are actually carrying out their purposes (accountability). First, there are vanity metrics.

User Timing and Custom Metrics

Speed Curve

Across the performance industry, the metric that's used the most is "page load time" (i.e, "window.onload" or "document complete"). But these metrics suffer from the same major drawback as page load time: they are ignorant of what content the user is most interested in on the page. Any performance metric that values all the content the same is not a good metric. The way to do this is to create custom metrics with User Timing. Sample Custom Metrics.

Why both TPM and NOPM Performance Metrics?

HammerDB

The reason for reporting both TPM and NOPM performance metrics is for both historical and performance reasons. Firstly for database performance engineering studies TPM relates directly to the metrics captured from the database. If you are comparing one database only then TPM is better as you can relate this directly to all of the database performance metrics you have captured however if you are comparing different databases then you should use NOPM instead when reporting results
