Systems architectures are often highly layered. Applications live on top of data processing frameworks (SparkR, Hadoop) with runtimes, operating systems, hypervisors or containers, network stacks and so forth. These bring a plethora of performance and security concerns. In this 2 hour session, we will have a look at some of the ways to address these problems including static analysis for performance and vulnerabilities, and tracing and debugging at runtime. We'll be looking at the overall architectural reasons why there may be performance or security problems, more than specifics of a particular piece of software. This is an advanced session
