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 Evaluation of Python


We need to evaluate the performance while looking at the different capabilities and accomplishments before making a performance card. In a class, some students are multi-talented and score well in all the spheres- sports, academics, and debates.

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.

HTTP Toolkit for Performance Engineers

Why Performance Projects Fail?


Projects involving performance testing and engineering fail for a variety of reasons. The majority of performance project failures occur for various highly complex reasons from every phase of the development life cycle and performance testing life cycle. Sometimes, performance problems are uncontrollable, and it’s out of the control of a project manager, technical architects, or performance engineers.

Performance Budgets, Pragmatically

One of the key tools that performance engineers have at their disposal is the Performance Budget: it helps us—or, more importantly, our clients—ensure that any performance-focused work is monitored and maintained after we’ve gone. Example Performance Budgets.

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.
