Benchmark proves OpenDJ fastest directory server !

Isode has just released a benchmark of their M-Vault R15.1 directory server, and has run some comparative tests against OpenLDAP and OpenDJ.

While the benchmark demonstrates that M-Vault is one of the best directory server out there (the new release has some really impressive search performance) , I paid more attention to the write performance, and I really like those results that are showing the OpenDJ is the fastest directory server for write operations, even when modifications are mixed with searches.

Thanks Isode for running those tests, and making those numbers publicly available.

    I dont see anything impressive about their search performance. Decent machine there and with both database and entry sizes being that small 100k is easy to cross. In fact we done that years ago now with old OpenDS on lesser hardware back then. To me this looks like yet another vendor marketing benchmark where the product that needs to get differentiated gets tuned to squeeze every last bit of performance out of it while comparison products are benchmarked pretty much out of the box. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to you guys! 🙂

      Benchmarks are benchmarks and always presented in the way that suits best the producer of the results. Especially with LDAP since there’s no standard benchmark.
      Results are still impressive in comparison with the other servers on the same machine. That benchmark has the advantage of being public. Whatever was done with old OpenDS as you name it, was private to Sun and never published.
      Merry Christmas to you and your family. Hope to see you some time in the new year.

    Fastest or not, OpenDJ and the effort being placed by ForgeRock to make OpenDJ continue to rock is really impressive. It really demonstrates your on-going commitment to keeping the product enterprise strength and reliable for all purposes. Congratulations to the team, looking forward to continued success with OpenDJ and the ForgeRock suite of tools.

    Actually Anton, no. I did the benchmarks here and we spent a _great_ deal of time tuning OpenDJ (you can verify that with Matt Swift). In each test I chose the figures that showed each of the vendor offerings in the best possible light.
