As developers, how to predict and optimize the performance of your serverless functions? Our paper “Enhancing Performance Modeling of Serverless Functions via Static Analysis” provides you the possibility to build your own analytical performance model for serverless workflows. The proposed method focuses on helping developers to extract model topology by working on their source code, and devises an instrumentation strategy for code-level profiling to enhance the model accuracy. Accurate prediction of response time can be achieved with error rate below 7.3%!
