I have spent the past year doing performance modelling of a new product that is being rolled progressively to clients. The most frustrating thing has the lack of meaningful feedback from the product support group. Everytime I raise a concern that the performance is not as expected, I get the platitude that the product is performing as expected.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here's an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Three (3) years ago, I recommended and set up a logical standby database for a critical business function. This is now widely viewed as a failure.
Today, we did some rough and ready performance tuning of one of our logical standby database instance.
Today, a quick performance comparison came back to bite me, and it was all about percentages.
