Scalability - measuring load        

If you can't predict a system's scalability in the face of increasing load, you'll struggle with choosing the right design for your system - whether that's design at a high level such as component separation and interfaces, or at a low level with algorithms and data structures. Inevitably you have to test and test again - it's very difficult to predict scalability by just looking at an application's design and code. And for testing, you need a good metric that will tell you about scaling characteristics. Read more
