ATAM Sensitivity | How to determine Architecture Sensitivity

Sensitivity Point

Sensitivity – A property of a component that is critical to success of system.

The number of simultaneous database clients will affect the number of transaction a database can process per second. This assignment is a sensitivity point for the performance.
 Power of encryption (Security) sensitive to number of bits of the key
Frequency of crawl is sensitive to performance
Machine learning platform for recommendation can produce better result by increasing the sample size which need more nodes. Merging results from multiple nodes impact the accuracy of recommendation algorithm.
Recommendation works on old data. If data is > 7 days old, recommendation benefits starts reducing as data gets more stale
