Postgres 8.4 Testing with new JDBC Drivers
By Jignesh Shah on May 28, 2009
At PGCon 2009, Jesper Pedersen talked to me about the new Binary Transfer patch which was submitted to the JDBC Driver for Postgres 8.4. I thought it will be nice to compare how the JDBC 8.4 driver compared to older 8.3 JDBC Driver. Hence I took it for a drive
The 8.4 JDBC Driver with BinaryTransfer patch seems to get to a better peak faster but since to taper off at high clients. I don't know if this benchmark was the right benchmark for it. Need more benchmarks which uses JDBC to see the performance difference with this feature.
