3.1. About the optimization process

The optimization process involves identifying bottlenecks in applications, then using techniques to remove them.

There are a number of steps in the optimization process:

  • take performance readings from your application

  • analyze the readings to locate the bottleneck

  • identify the types of optimization that are appropriate

  • select and apply an optimization

  • take performance readings to ensure the optimization works.

The steps are shown in Figure 3.1.

The optimization process is likely to reveal a series of different bottlenecks, so you might have to go through the process a number of times to remove them all. See Bottlenecks move between processors.
