TL;DR: performance optimization (and the other things, too) will soon need to become much more automated than now.
I haven’t done quite a lot of blogging recently, despite my earlier plans. I have been living in peaceful Estonia for three months now. There’s been a lot of time to think.
In this blog post, I will share my rather philosophical musings about performance optimality. Incidentally, it also applies to monitoring and designing complex systems. There shouldn’t be any hardcore stuff inside, not even low-level optimization of pipelines. Just some ideas I have contemplated.
