Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In computer science, overhead is generally considered any combination of excess or indirect computation time, memory, bandwidth, or other resources that are required to attain a particular goal. It is a special case of engineering overhead. A programmer/software engineer may have a choice of several algorithms, each of which have known characteristics. When choosing among them, their respective overhead should also be considered. In software engineering, overhead can influence the decision whether or not to include features in new products, or indeed whether to fix bugs.show more
