Subject Performance degradation in UIMA3
Date Mon, 29 Jun 2020 11:15:40 GMT
Hi all,

I am writing because I noticed that our pipelines got considerably slower after updating to
UIMA3. The cause of the slowdown seems to be the fact that the method getJCasRegisteredType
located in TypeSystemImpl uses a synchronised block. We haven't noticed it before but when
I was running a pipeline in a large machine (48 cores with 80 worker threads) many of the
threads were blocked in this specific method.

I just wanted to point that this is a big problem for us and I am not sure if you are aware
or if there is some workaround. I am at this point considering packaging our own version of
UIMA without the synchronised block since our types are not dynamic and should be loaded when
the pipeline starts so it is unlikely that we need the synchronised access to the type registry.

Best regards,
