My team is working on improving performance for our web application.
We have a general idea that we want to:
- Lower the number of "bad" API calls by focusing on driving down the number of requests that take longer than X seconds (focusing on particular endpoints).
- Improve overall performance as measured by e.g. Apxex.
Unfortunately, it is difficult to estimate how long each performance optimization will take as we're not sure of what's causing some of the individual bottlenecks.
How can we take the information we have now and turn it into relaistic quarterly goals?
