A Closer Look at Fedora's Ingest Performance
MetadataShow full item record
It is of paramount importance for large-scale applications that Fedora can handle huge amounts of data efficiently. While Fedora is generally known to be stable and reliable, there appears to be a lack of data and experience regarding large-scale installations and the performance implications thereof. FIZ Karlsruhe is currently working on several projects with large-scale Fedora repositories holding several million complex objects. We conducted extensive performance and scalability tests with the current Fedora software (mostly version 3.0), focusing on ingest operations. Our goal was to prove that Fedora actually scales well enough for our use cases. Our test runs provided us with data which helped us identifying limits and constraints, and devising some optimization recommendations.
