Publishing tens of millions of messages per second

Welcome to our first newsletter from Chronicle giving you updates on developments at Chronicle Software plus tips and case studies around how Chronicle have helped clients to maximise value from their implementation.

Case Study

We have many examples where we have helped clients who are using our open source software to optimise their solution below is a recent example:-

We helped a client achieve a 12.5x throughput improvement for Chronicle Queue with minimal changes to their solution going from millions of messages per second to tens of millions of events per second.

A large Petrochemical company engaged us to help with performance issues they were seeing writing market data to our Chronicle Queue. The way they were using queue with an older version was limited to about 3.5 million messages per second (per queue). Rather than use more queues they needed to improve the throughput of each one. After tuning their solution and using the last version of Chronicle Queue, they were able to achieve 8.5 million messages per second from Java. What they really needed was a faster, low level way to write from C++ so we produced a bespoke solution for their use case which achieved 44 million messages per second.

This was the throughput just to write the messages and didn’t include their logic.
