Techniques for Delayed Binding of Monitoring Mechanisms to Application-Specific Instrumentation Points
Online interaction with computer systems and applications allows developers to monitor, experiment with, and debug long-running, resource-intensive applicationsat runtime. Traditionally, developers statically bind a monitoring mechanism to each application-specificinstrumentation point. This approach has shortcomings for online, interactive monitoring. Namely, static binding limits portability among monitoring systems; it may mismatch monitoring mechanisms to interactive requests for monitoring data; and, predictions for the performance and execution paths of instrumentation for static bindings are left to the developer. To address these concerns, we have created a new technique called monitoring assertions that allows monitoring systems to delay binding of monitoring mechanisms to application-specific instrumentationpoints until runtime. Our empirical results show that we can alter the performance of both the applicationand the monitoring system by removing static binding requirement...
