Each of these components often has dozens of tuneable parameters.\nHow many times are those values typically tweaked before a final set of tuned\nparameters are settled on? What criteria are typically used to determine the\noptimal set?\n\nThis session presents a new method of automatically tuning a common LAMP stack\nfor optimal performance. We explore a solution using some common Python-based\nautomated deployment and load testing tools and dive into scientific computing\nwith SciPy.\n\n", "quality_notes": "", "copyright_text": "Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0", "embed": "", "thumbnail_url": "http://a.images.blip.tv/Pycon-PyCon2011SwarmingTheWebEvolvingThePerfectConfigFile838.png", "duration": null, "video_ogv_length": 138952836, "video_ogv_url": null, "video_ogv_download_only": false, "video_mp4_length": null, "video_mp4_url": "http://05d2db1380b6504cc981-8cbed8cf7e3a131cd8f1c3e383d10041.r93.cf2.rackcdn.com/pycon-us-2011/405_swarming-the-web-evolving-the-perfect-config-file.mp4", "video_mp4_download_only": false, "video_webm_length": null, "video_webm_url": null, "video_webm_download_only": false, "video_flv_length": null, "video_flv_url": null, "video_flv_download_only": false, "source_url": "", "whiteboard": "", "recorded": "2011-03-11", "added": "2012-02-23T04:20:00", "updated": "2014-04-08T20:28:28.041" }
