dotCMS Enterprise Performance Report

To demonstrate the scaleability of the dotCMS platform, dotCMS engineers designed a test to benchmark various content delivery components of the dotCMS Enterprise Prime system. As a baseline, dotCMS engineers performed the benchmark tests on untuned dotCMS Enterprise Prime instances running on modern server hardware. Next, because of the significant interest in cloud technologies, the dotCMS engineering team performed an extensive round of performance testing on an untuned dotCMS Enterprise Prime running on all levels of Amazon’s Elastic Cloud platform, both as a single server and running in a clustered configuration.

  • A single dotCMS Instance, running on a physical server, can serve over 4,600 authenticated page views a second (average across a number of page types) with average response times of ~.02 seconds. These numbers are taken from multitude of real world page types, files and templates. This translates to 11,923,200,000 page views a month.1

  • dotCMS Enterprise scales both vertically and horizontally. Pages served increases linearly as additional servers are added to a dotCMS cluster even as response times decrease.

  • dotCMS Enterprise will run effectively on all levels of Amazon’s EC2 offerings, though as expected the larger instance sizes offer better performance. dotCMS performs better on Amazon’s High CPU offerings than on Amazon’s High Memory instances.
