Performance Tuning Go Applications on GCP (Cloud Next '19)

I want to optimize the performance of my cloud components, to save money and above all to improve responsiveness. Nobody enjoys slow software. My strategy is to consider the whole picture, to measure, and to focus on the bottlenecks. I will tell the story of a cool app — written in Go using App Engine and GKE — which has latency problems. Let’s explore how to diagnose them with the tooling: benchmarks, pprof, CPU trace, flame graphs, OpenCensus, heatmaps, and StackDriver waterfalls. Once I am able to visualize the latencies, it becomes much easier to incrementally make my app faster.
