1. 2

Will submit each suggested tag as its own comment so it can be voted on and discussed separately. Each suggestion has a couple of my own submissions that I wished I could have used the tag for.

    Profiling

    Things related to cpu/memory profiling tools, telemetry, implementation, and techniques. Use cases, papers on novel methods of profiling, etc…

    1. 1

      This has overlap with testing for me.

      1. 1

        could you elaborate on your concern?

        1. 1

          I’m not @calvin, but I’d guess they both feel like they cover “we have this running system, how do we understand and improve its properties?”

          1. 3

            More broadly, I don’t think it’s that bad to have tags that might have some overlap. Also, I’m not sure that I agree that something like dtrace would make sense in a tag next to xUnit.

      1. 1

        This has overlap with scaling to me.

      2. 2

        Garbage Collection / Memory Management

        Submissions relating to garbage collection / reference counting algorithms, implementation, performance tuning, etc… As well as things like rust’s ownership/regions or arena-based management.

        1. 1

          I would call this memory-management; garbage collection is just one option.
