About O/ρ

O/ρ is a reference to two quantities in IT performance engineering:

  • Big-O notation is used to describe time complexity of algorithms - how algorithm execution time scales with the volume of the input.
  • \( \rho \) is defined to be the utilization of queuing systems.

Inadequate or lack of attention for scalability and utilization is a common cause for failing IT projects. Moreover, efficient software has a smaller environmental footprint - it uses less energy.
