When Tools Attack

MERGE User Conference


Perforce and its performance are dear to my heart, my job and the teams I support – it’s something I’m deeply passionate and driven about, both in and out of the office.

With the increasing demands continuous delivery, build and automated processes can place on your server, performance and efficiency are becoming ever more important. No system is perfect however, and in my experience I’ve found most problems to arise from one of three sources:

  • Tools and tool changes
  • User operations
  • Lack of system resource

In my presentation I will be focusing on tools gone rogue, sharing a few examples I’ve encountered (sometimes repeatedly), covering their cause and effect, along with some ways you can tackle them.

I look forward to seeing you there!
