Quiz - Performance Modeling

Performance Modeling is as much a science as it is art and one of the less understood topics by developers. Performance modeling is mot same as Performance testing using Load/Stress methodology although data collected through testing can be extremely useful to properly initialize the model and validate it. This quiz touches upon some of the fundamental formulas used in performance modeling.
