Visualizing System Latency

Heat maps are a unique and powerful way to visualize latency data. Explaining the results, however, is an ongoing challenge.

These patterns provide insight into how a system is actually performing and what kinds of latency end-user applications experience. Many characteristics seen in these patterns are still not understood, but so far their analysis is revealing systemic behaviors that were previously unknown.
