Web Services Performance (WS-Performance [1]) provides policy
assertions that can be used to describe Web service performance
characteristics and in particular provides set of metrics for already
existing Web Services specifications. One of the most important concerns
when composing Web Services is impact on performance of each
specification. Therefore if there could be a synthetic indicator of
performance impact of each specification it could help to automate
estimation of composed Web Services performance and that is
the role of WS-Performance to provide framework for such estimations.

This specification composes especially well with WS-Goodness [2] to
provide Web services that are both good and of reliable performance
and although currently may be a bit slow (as all Web Services ...)
but WS-Performance helps to estimate how fast (or slow) they are!
