In order to benchmark and document the data scalability of our Product Information Management software, Agility Multichannel commissioned an independent third party, Fusion Systems, to conduct a thorough unbiased test of Agility®.
In a 40-page report, available here for download, Fusion Systems details the scope, approach and results of their testing. Multiple tests were run on two different data sets:
- 250,000 Sku’s x 40 attribute instances = 10 million attribute instances, and
- 2.5 million Sku’s x 100 attribute instances = 250 million attribute instances
The test environment included an Oracle WebLogic application server and an MS SQL Server database, both running on separate virtualized servers, with test harnesses simulating users operating clients on a 1GB LAN, which is a common environment for many Agility customers. The tests were run against 10 PIM sessions, 30 PIM sessions, and 50 PIM sessions, and involved creating new records, unlinking records, deleting records, adding attributes, and global search. Fusion Systems concluded:
We can make a statement that on our test environment the Agility database shows little performance degradation against a database with 2.5 million SKU’s times (x) 100 attribute instances = 250 million attribute instances.
The comprehensive report supports this conclusion with numerous detailed summaries and charts.
