The internal behavior of large-scale software systems cannot be determined on the basis of static (e.g., source code) analysis alone. Kieker provides complementary dynamic analysis capabilities, i.e., monitoring and analyzing a software system’s runtime behavior — enabling Application Performance Monitoring and Architecture Discovery.
The 11th Symposium on Software Performance (SSP ’20), was held as an online event from November 12 to 13, 2020. Every year, the SSP brings together researchers and practitioners interested in software performance and related quality attributes. The scope of SSP spans measurement, modeling, benchmark design, and run-time management. SSP 2020 was planned to take place in Leipzig, Germany. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-related circumstances, a physical meeting was not possible.
A new article in the Software Impacts journal reflects on Kieker’s history, development, and impact both in research and technology transfer with industry. The article is available as open access: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.simpa.2020.100019
On May 12, 2020, we released version 1.14 of our Kieker framework for application performance monitoring and dynamic software analysis. As usual, the release is available for download at http://kieker-monitoring.net/download/.
