Oracle is hosting a webinar today covering the awesome performance of their Exadata system. Sure Oracle’s OLTP tests probably do slightly more than Clean Speak does, but 1,870 transactions in 2 minutes hardly seems like something to rave about.
The Clean Speak profanity filter handles between 5,000 and 10,000 messages per second. The profanity filter doesn’t hit the database, but the Clean Speak Moderator tool does.
The latest tests of the Moderation tool put it around 1,000-2,000 messages per second.
So, if we use Oracle’s time granularity of 2 minutes, Clean Speak handles anywhere from 60,000-600,000 messages. Perhaps Oracle needs to work on optimizing their OTLP test system a bit.
