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)
