When starting on the path of improving application performance, it is always important to know when you can stop. The goal posts would depend on the type of application being written and the number of active users of the application and the budget. Some examples of performance goals are:​​​

  • ​Every page loads in under 100 ms
  • Able to handle 1000 active concurrent users
  • Getting an A on Google Page Index
  • Search page should return results in under 100ms​​

With the goal posts firmly in sight, the developers can begin performance tuning the application.​
