Performance Improvement in Sun Connection Inventory

Last month we launched the new Sun Connection Inventory Channel to help customers track all their stuff.  We're using a continuous improvement plan for this product (no six month release cycles here!), and will be doing a lot to this service in the next few months.  I'm an old performance wonk, so I watch  that pretty closely.  Last week the team pushed out a new release of the code that substantially improves performance in a couple of key areas.  Check out the chart below for specifics.

 

Some of the key changes the team made were:

  • JVM  Heap Settings (some things never change)
  • Web Server thread pool and acceptor thread tuning 
  • Tuned networking and /etc/system settings
  • Modified webserver keep-alives and changed backend services to use persistent HTTP connections
  • Increased thread pools on their “Restricted Parties Service” in response to server exceptions (this service is used Sun-wide to make sure we don't do things like ship software to countries not allowed by US law)
There are actually some more performance improvements coming, but more exciting than that there is a new look and feel and some killer new features.  I'll talk more about that in the coming weeks.
