MongoDB Performance Resources

Alex Podelko

As I started to work for MongoDB, I started to get questions about MongoDB performance. We do have a lot of great resources that can help with MongoDB performance. First of all, it is MongoDB and Atlas documentation: Performance , Monitoring , and Query Optimization.

Performance Testing at MongoDB

Alex Podelko

MongoDB has the most advanced continuous performance testing I know about. MongoDB shared a lot of information on how we do performance testing and even open sourced some parts of it. Continuous performance testing is built on the top of Evergreen.

The Future of Performance Testing

Alex Podelko

While there are still quite a lot of cases where it is still applicable, it needs to evolve into more sophisticated processes tightly integrated with development and other parts of performance engineering. First of all, integrating into agile development (shift-left / continuous performance testing) and integrating into performance information loop with production (shift-right) to form a holistic performance view.

Performance Optimization Techniques


Performance is an integral part of the Application design and plays a vital role in the success of your product/application. This is Part-2 of the performance optimization articles series. Performance optimization considerations for an enterprise-level application are discussed as part of Part-1. Before delving into performance optimization techniques, let us discuss the factors that impact the performance of an application.

Performance Issues (The Problem)


Today I want to talk about my experience working on solve performance issues in the systems. In several years working as a software developer I have faced performance issues several times, and I want to share some tips about this topic.

CSS and Network Performance

CSS Wizardry

Let me address that by combining my two favourite topics: CSS and performance. Broadly speaking, this is why CSS is so key to performance: A browser can’t render a page until it has built the Render Tree; the Render Tree is the combined result of the DOM and the CSSOM; the DOM is HTML plus any blocking JavaScript that needs to act upon it; the CSSOM is all CSS rules applied against the DOM; it’s easy to make JavaScript non-blocking with async and defer.

Industry Trends and Performance

Alex Podelko

One software vendor ask me, along with a few other performance professionals, to answer questions related to performance trends. But they changed their mind and never published it – leaving me to contemplate which particular thought they didn’t like… Well, here are their questions and my answers: What do you think is the “next big thing in performance” – or what should we all keep an eye out for in 2018?

Performance Metrics of Your QA Team


QA performance metrics are essential for eliminating inefficient strategies and improving internal processes. Your QA performance metrics process should identify if goals are being met as and analyze resources to make sure they are producing to their maximum capacity. Performance measures and analysis should extend beyond the executive decision-makers with input from the entire team - that way, all QA engineers are motivated and can maximize their productivity.
