I had a few questions about the performance numbers posted here https://tyk.io/tyk-api-gateway-benchmarks/
- What was the CPU like ?
- I am assuming the times posted are pure overhead numbers and doesn’t include the round trip time to the target url that it is proxying to. Am I correct ?
These tests were on 2-Core DigitalOcean VMs with 2GB RAM
The numbers are the full request time, the target API was another (4 core) server running NginX and serving a static JSON payload.
Thanks for the reply. I should have been more specific with my question 1) What was the CPU utilization peak obeserved?
At the higher end of the load count you would start seeing 90% CPU @ 3k tps. Depending on the workload, different configurations hit the CPU harder.
What we can say is that you can linearly increase throughout with more cores.
