some testing of data mart export

Forwarding mail from Andris Bjornson of Inveneo, who have done some tests
on their low-energy computers. Just thought more people would be
interested in the results..

Andris, what's the data load of these exports?

Hi Johan,

Yup I have DHIS2 up and running on two boxes we're comparing performance on:
a 1.2GHz, 512MB RAM system, and a dual core Intel Atom 1.6GHz, 2GB RAM
system.

Your suggestion to use the data mart export made for a very helpful
test...thanks! We were actually surprised to see a relatively small
performance difference between the two. My initial tests use:

export all data elements, all indicators, for the entire Sierra Leone
organizational unit for the months of June 2008, July 2008, and August 2008.
(I plan to scale up and use more dates later...but it's difficult since I
can't automate the timing I have to use a stopwatch and keep an eye on the
window to make sure I stop the clock when it finishes.)

This takes approximately 6m20s on the single core system, and 5m on the dual
core. Does this sound reasonable? We had perhaps expected a greater bump
in performance from the more powerful hardware.

Thanks again for your help,

Andris

Hi all

Sorry to be jumping in on this discussion (the genesis of which I know
nothing!) but it got me thinking that we should consider developing a
couple of uniform performance tests like this one for comparison
purposes.

This would require that we make use of a "standard" sample data set.
Were you guys using your own data or the sanitized sample data from
South Africa?

If we use the same data we can start benchmarking and publishing up on
the wiki. This kind of information would be really useful for
programmers optimizing stuff but also for implementors getting some
idea if their configuration is producing reasonable performance.

Does anybody know how representative is the existing sample data ie.
would it form a good basis for testing?

What are the real bottleneck processes to benchmark:
1. startup/initial login time
2. datamart export
3. ....

We can use selenium to automate some of the processes and timing,

Regards
Bob

PS. just re-read and noticed that you are using the SL orgunit.

Hi Johan,

Yup I have DHIS2 up and running on two boxes we’re comparing performance on:

a 1.2GHz, 512MB RAM system, and a dual core Intel Atom 1.6GHz, 2GB RAM

system.

Your suggestion to use the data mart export made for a very helpful

test…thanks! We were actually surprised to see a relatively small

performance difference between the two. My initial tests use:

export all data elements, all indicators, for the entire Sierra Leone

organizational unit for the months of June 2008, July 2008, and August 2008.

(I plan to scale up and use more dates later…but it’s difficult since I

can’t automate the timing I have to use a stopwatch and keep an eye on the

window to make sure I stop the clock when it finishes.)

Hi, just a note: The datamart process logs how much time it takes (see the eg Tomcat log for something like " Datamart process completed in …")

···

This takes approximately 6m20s on the single core system, and 5m on the dual

core. Does this sound reasonable? We had perhaps expected a greater bump

in performance from the more powerful hardware.

Thanks again for your help,

Andris

SolarMax Charge Controller + Battery

Approx 205mm x 190mm x 390mm

Approx 6.5kg

Server

No larger than 240mm x 240mm x 80mm

(let me know if you need mounting info)

Inveneo Computing Station

Standard 15" LCD with rear mounted computer unit, attached keyboard and

mouse

350mm x 350mm x 180mm

Base is 180mm circular diameter

Asus

http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=24&l2=169&l3=0&l4=0&model=2290&modelmenu=2

PC with integrated widescreen 15.6" touchscreen, attached keyboard

405mm x 330mm x 90mm

requires rectangular area 405mm x 160mm table space if using attached

stand

(See pages 18-19 of attached E4251_Eee_Top_ET16_Series_HW.pdf for

mounting

info if required)

5 port network swich

200mm x 120mm x 30mm

Hope this helps, let me know if you need more info.
