[NPL] Book: Web Performance Tuning

For immediate release
October 19, 1998

Faster, faster, faster...Web Performance Tuning

Sebastopol, CA--"When I told people I was writing a book called 'Web
Performance Tuning', the usual response I got was that the title should be
'Web Server Performance Tuning'", explains author Patrick Killelea, "But
when you're desperate to improve performance, you can become much more
creative about finding other parts of the web that you can tune."
Killelea's just-released book, "Web Performance Tuning" (O'Reilly, $32.95)
thoroughly covers tuning web server software, but it goes beyond the
server, uncovering ways to get optimal performance from a browser, tuning
the hardware (on both the server and browser ends) and maximizing the
capacity of the network itself.

As the World Wide Web (also jokingly referred to as the World Wide Wait)
matures, more users, more data, and more features have slowed down servers
and the loading of web pages to a crawl. Increased traffic has
unfortunately coincided with increased expectations, and improved
performance has never been more critical.

"Web Performance Tuning" shows you how to get the best possible performance
from the Web. This valuable new book hits the ground running, giving
concrete advice for quick results. After improving crippled performance,
you can then turn to the second half of "Web Performance Tuning" for an
examination of each element of a web transaction to fine tune your
performance--discovering the weak links in the chain, and strengthening
them.

From using simultaneous downloads to locate bottlenecks, to upgrading
device drivers to locating the web server strategically to adjusting TCP,
"Web Performance Tuning" offers practical, "I'll try it right now" kind of
tips.

If you want your Web site to run faster and more efficiently (and who
doesn't ?) you need this book. "In the end," says Killelea, "performance
tuning is about spending money and time wisely to get the most out of your
resources. A lot of life is like that."
