  Specific performance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the law of remedies, a specific performance is a demand of a party to perform a specific act.
Under the common law, specific performance was not a remedy, with the rights of a litigant being limited to the collection of damages.
Specific performance is often guaranteed through the remedy of a writ of possession, giving the plaintiff the right to take possession of the property in dispute.

Typically, the remedy for breach of contract is an award of money damages intended to restore the injured party to the economic position that he or she expected from performance of the promise or promises (known as an "expectation measure" of damages).
Occasionally a court will order a party to perform his or her promise (an order of "specific performance" or "quantum meruit"), but this remedy is unusual.
Alternatively, an offer consisting of a promise to pay someone if the latter performs certain acts which the latter would not otherwise do (such as paint a house) may be accepted by the requested conduct instead of a promise to do the act.

 Performance Appraisal
Performance appraisal can be viewed as the process of assessing and recording staff performance for the purpose of making judgments about staff that lead to decisions.
Performance appraisal should also be viewed as a system of highly interactive processes which involve personnel at all levels in differing degrees in determining job expectations, writing job descriptions, selecting relevant appraisal criteria, developing assessment tools and procedures, and collecting interpreting, and reporting results.
Performance appraisal should be viewed as a process, and not simply as the creation of ubiquitous standards.

 Enabling High Performance Data Transfers [PSC]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Applications sometimes perform poorly on long paths (even when the network is perfect) because they are not designed to fully overlap the speed of light delay to deliver the data with the processing at the end systems.
The basic approach is to measure the properties of a short section of the path, and extrapolate the results as though the path was extended to the full RTT with an ideal network.
Specific details on how to enable these options in various operating systems is provided in a later section.

 Legal Definition of Specific Performance
In such cases the party grieved has generally a remedy at law, and he may recover damages for the breach of the contract; but, in many cases, the recovery of damages is an incompetent remedy, and the party seeks to recover a specific performance of the agreement.
It is a general rule, that courts of equity will entertain jurisdiction for a specific performance of agreements, whenever courts of law can give but an inadequate remedy; and it is immaterial whether the subject relate to real or personal estate.
But the rule is confined to cases where courts of law cannot give an adequate remedy.

Database systems work hard to tune I/O performance, but do not always achieve the full performance potential of modern disk systems.
Their abstracted view of storage components hides useful device-specific characteristics, such as disk track boundaries and advanced built-in firmware algorithms.
Experiments using IBM DB2 I/O traces as well as a prototype implementation show that Lachesis improves standalone DSS performance by 10% on average.
