Testing OSCache...

Out of curiosity, I decided to enable OSCache on this web server. For some strange reason, I cannot use their ~CacheFilter, which cuts off everything after 16384 bytes... But we're now both caching the main page, as well as the RSS feed.

Let's see if it helps in page load times and server load.

Update: Yap, everything seems to be snappier, but I can't be certain until I try some serious load later on today...

Update2: OK, apparently it works. I managed to overload my 1.4 GHz Athlon at home when trying to overload this server, but the load here got never over 2, and it still served happily 80+ JSP pages/minute. Hooray for OSCache! I'm definitely going to integrate it into JSPWiki.


80 JSP pages per minute? Woo-hoo!

Janne, what kind of processing power does this box have? I know you increased the RAM recently, but I'm guessing (based on the above statistic, plus the fact that searching the JSPWiki site is very slow) the processor is a bit dated.

Any chance of an upgrade? I think it would prevent visitors (like my boss, who I'm trying to convince to use JSPWiki instead of TWiki for an intranet site) from concluding that JSPWiki is slow.

1.4 GHz Athlon - never mind my last comment, if you see it (where do they go, anyway?)

I expected them to show up on your blog (although feel free to delete my 3 comments, since they're worthless : )

The server hosting this blog is a 266 MHz Pentium II with 512 MB of RAM. It's also running at least seven JSPWiki instances, all with differing versions. JVM is the 1.4.2-beta, using HotSpot Server. The 1.4 GHz Athlon is something I have at home, which I use to develop JSPWiki. JSPWiki is positively fast on that machine =).

I agree, search is slow. But it is slow because of the search algorithm we use, not because of the machine.

You can do the OSCache installation yourself, it's quite easy. I put short instructions on JSPWiki:UsingOSCacheWithJSPWiki.
