Rewrite rules performance

Hi community, I would like to know how rewrite rules affects the performance for the Tyk gateway. Does it affect it or it’s basically the same ?

Great question @javiertc. However, could you give a scenario?

  1. What URL rewrite are you taking advantage of?
  2. How many API calls would be performed per hour / day?

I think it would be much easier to get an answer.

Hi @Olu thanks for getting back to me.

It’s more a broader question, I’m not using URL rewrite but in some scenarios it might be useful. Let’s say we need 100K requests in an hour.

The impact of the re-writes rules is minimal and barely noticeable. Tyk uses Go’s regex so it should be as fast as go since it is stored in memory.

Good to know, thanks for your answer.
