Data Grid Performance Factors

April 16, 2013

Data Grid

The technical white paper that I wrote on JBoss Data Grid performance factors is now available for download.

It details the performance impact of configuration options in three basic configurations: distributed (XA) transactions, local (auto-commit) transactions, and no transactions.

Distributed (XA) Transactions

  • Locking: Pessimistic v Optimistic
  • Transaction Recovery: Enabled v Disabled
  • JTA Synchronization

In addition, it compares the performance impact of the above configuration options in the following use cases:

  • Multiple Writes (1 to 5) per Transaction
  • Multiple Reads & Writes (20%-80% Writes) per Transaction

Local (Auto-Commit) Transactions

  • Locking: Pessimistic v Optimistic
  • Commit Protocol: One-Phase Commit (1PC) v Two-Phase Commit (2PC)

No Transactions

  • Communication: Synchronous v Asynchronous
  • Number of Owners: 1 v 2
  • Return Values: Previous v None

Finally, the technical white paper concludes with some performance data on scaling and it includes an appendix with all of the raw performance test data.
