4 Architecture Issues When Scaling Web Applications: Bottlenecks, Database, CPU, IO:

This is a guest repost by Venkatesh CM at Architecture Issues Scaling Web Applications.

I will cover architecture issues that show up while scaling and performance tuning large scale web application in this blog.

Lets start by defining few terms to create common understanding and vocabulary. Later on I will go through different issues that pop-up while scaling web application like

  • Architecture bottlenecks
  • Scaling Database
  • CPU Bound Application
  • IO Bound Application

Determining optimal thread pool size of an web application will be covered in next blog.
