xPlore Benchmark Results Released

EMC released their new full-text search engine, xPlore, for Documentum in November of 2010.  Even before then they were busy justifying their claims that xPlore is fast, light-weight, efficient and scalable.  This just released benchmark study (https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-9504) proves they were right-on with their initial claims.

Here is the test scenario and results in a nutshell:

  • 6,000 simulated concurrent users,
  • sustained load of 8,640 queries / hour,
  • 30 million documents indexed,
  • all servers ran on reasonable hardware platforms (no super computers involved)
  • 1.1 sec (avg) response time.

Not bad, eh?  I encourage you to read the benchmark summary (it’ short) to understand all the facts, conditions and variations that went into the test and the results.

If you are interested in running some benchmarks on your own xPlore installation, here is a great little tool to assist you: xPloreQueryBenchmark Utility.

Just in case you need it, here is the xPlore Community homepage (https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-8945).

Lastly, though it is old news, here is a link to EMC’s 100,000 user / 1 billion object benchmark study conducted back in November of 2008 with Microsoft.

I have been implementing Documentum solutions since 1997. In 2005, I published a book about developing Documentum solutions for the Documentum Desktop Client (ISBN 0595339689). In 2010, I began this blog as a record of interesting and (hopefully) helpful bits of information related to Documentum, and as a creative outlet.
