Simple performance trending

This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

Starting performance tests late in a project is risky and costly. Very simple performance tests that exercise key parts of the system, run on a regular basis, are good enough to track trends, so we can react if we see a change in performance. Run these tests with your build or as an overnight job and graph the results to create simple performance trending. Complex performance tests in a truly representative environment are still useful, but don’t wait for them to start understanding how the performance of your code is changing.
