'Big' Spaces: High Load/Slow Performance

Question asked by deas0815 on May 26, 2009
Hallo everybody,

can't believe I'm the only one bitten by this one, so I'll try again. ;)

Got alfresco labs 3.0Stable running using mysql.

Listing a "Big" Space containing a few thousand files really hurts the system - no
matter whether you use CIFS, NFS, FTP or the web client.

It is very easy to reproduce. Mount a volume (using CIFS or NFS) and run:


seq 5000 | while read f; do touch ${f}.txt; done
ls -l

The listing causes peak loads of roughly 2000 qps and takes approx. 40s on my system.

Should ehcache tweaking signifikantly help ?
Am I missing something ?

regards
Andreas
