Subject [jira] Commented: (OPENJPA-160) Reuse BrokerImpl objects
Date Tue, 27 Feb 2007 23:07:06 GMT


John Stecher commented on OPENJPA-160:

So here is a thought.  Basically this benchmark is performing 5 interactions with the database
doing a simple FBPK in this scenario.  Thus the tps numbers above really need to be multiplied
by 5 to get the total number of times we pass into the JPA code base.  So that really means
that we are doing 7000 invocations per second spread across 50 runtime threads in the appserver.
 This could lead to a heck of a lot of contention on any single sync point which is what we
saw in the earlier improvements we worked on with Kevin and company.  

Now someone can correct me if I am wrong here but isnt the JVM specification clear that when
initializing a class the class object must be synchronized on.  Thus possibly making this
the single most contended point in the codebase now that we have removed all the other sync
points in the earlier performance work?  

We are doing CPU sampling based profiling to cut overhead to a minimum so that would show
something like this as a hotspot I would think as the actually sync point is in C code and
happens under the newintsance method.

Anyway just throwing that out there for a reason this could be happening.  I am still baffled.
 Need to think about a test case to prove this as well.
