Debugging system performance

Diagnosing performance issues requires understanding the root cause of an issue. For example, a user might report that an application takes a minute to render a form. To find a resolution, a developer must understand whether the underlying issue is caused by database access, rules assembly, or browser rendering.

Use Pega Guardrails to help identify potential application design flaws that can impact performance.
