Analyzing Large & Complex Platforms: A Look at Linux

by Dan Sturtevant & Dave Allan

The Linux Fedora platform is composed of more than 2,500 interconnected software packages developed and managed by globally distributed teams and over 100,000 developers.  In this webinar, Daniel Sturtevant and David Allan present research that addresses the architectural complexity of the Fedora Linux operating system. They will discuss:

  • How to visualize the system at multiple levels (including the view from 60,000 feet) and gain meaningful insights about its hidden structure;
  • How to benchmark across the system to better understand its composition and variations in complexity and quality; and
  • How this approach can help you building and improve software platforms.
