Performance Problem Diagnosis Methodology

Performance Problem Diagnosis Methodology I'm often asked after solving some long-standing, difficult performance problem that couldn't be solved what methodology I use to diagnose and solve problems. My answer usually varies depending on the problem just solved, but that's not really the correct answer to the problem. The cop-out answer is simply "experience and a lot of study." The methodology I use is a lot like how a doctor diagnoses an illness...one of the reasons I love watching the show House on Fox.
