    Performance Numbers for JBoss Messaging 2.0

    Craig W Newbie

      One of the features for JBoss Messaging 2.0 is it's performance...so what sort of numbers are being seen with topics (with msg's being persisted and not-persisted) and what size are the messages being sent (i.e. how complex are the objects in the messages)?

          We haven't produced any scientific results and won't publish any until we can do them properly (hopefully before GA), but we have done some ad-hoc tests, to give you a taste:

          Performance very much depends on your hardware. Using a single quad core Xeon server with 16 GiB RAM and SAS hard drives as the messaging server we can currently hit around 50K *persistent* messages per second, each message is around 1100 bytes in size, that's a data persistence rate of around 60MiBytes/sec which is *very* fast.

          We hope to push that to around 100MiB/s which is close to saturating the disk's max physical write rate.

          For non persistent messages, on a single server I did about 350K small messages per second (empty bodies) and IIRC around 100K 1100 byte messages per sec.

          I don't want to be more specific than that right now, since the above results are not very scientific but they should give you an indication of what JBM 2 is capable of.

          Why not try it out yourself?
