Data Portcullis Performance

Data Portcullis has undergone many months of intensive performance testing and tuning by our certified SQL DBA so that it performs with incredible speed and efficiency.  To underline exactly how impressive the Data Portcullis systems is – note that all of the following test results were collected from a low specification Server – a basic quad core processor running just a single SQL Database.  The Performance throughput metrics gathered from a dedicated load balanced multi-server setup are far in excess of this, but have a look at exactly what it can do with only the most basic server setup.

New for 2014 – handles over 40,000 server hits per minute

Even on such a low specification machine – the ability to properly analyse and record over 40,000 unique visitors per minute caters for 99% of the worlds websites and web servers.  According to ‘QuantCast’ the total number of unique visitors per month for most of the worlds busiest websites could be processed by Data Portcullis in only a few days – and it can do this in real time without adversely affecting the ‘normal’ performance of the Website or Webserver it is monitoring.

 

Insignificant Database growth

Data Portcullis has been designed as a model of data transmission efficiency, keeping less than a single Kb of data for every connection that it examines.  As a result, the number of database tables used and indexes created are kept to an absolute minimum, so even where the system has been running for a long time, the database growth is not significant enough to seriously affect system performance.
