Profilers Are Lying Hobbits (and we hate them!)



Nitsan Wakart discusses concrete cases in which profilers misguide, misrepresent and at times subvert the systems they aim to help us diagnose. Wakart is teaching you to unlearn your trust, and relearn skepticism.


Nitsan Wakart is Lead Performance Engineer for Azul Systems, working on Zing, and main contributor to lock free data structures library JCTools.
