Tue 10 Nov 2020 17:37 - 17:38 at Virtual room 1 - Performance / QoS

A recent research showed that mobile apps represent nowadays 75% of the whole usage of mobile devices. This means that the mobile user experience, while tied to many factors (e.g., hardware device, connection speed, etc.), strongly depends on the quality of the apps being used. With “quality” here we do not simply refer to the features offered by the app, but also to its non-functional characteristics, such as security, reliability, and performance. This latter is particularly important considering the limited hardware resources (e.g., memory) mobile apps can exploit. In this paper, we present the largest study at date investigating performance bugs in mobile apps. In particular, we (i) define a taxonomy of the types of performance bugs affecting Android and iOS apps; and (ii) study the survivability of performance bugs (i.e., the number of days between the bug introduction and its fixing). Our findings aim to help researchers and apps developers in building performance-bugs detection tools and focusing their verification and validation activities on the most frequent types of performance bugs.
