The container-based test environment has been replicated on the following two system configurations:
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 7.5 host with Docker 1.13.1 running Ubuntu 18.04 guest images.
- Windows Server 2016 Datacenter with Docker Desktop Community 126.96.36.199 (31259), Engine 18.09.2 running Windows Server Core ltsc2016 guest images.
- IBM Integration Bus Version 10.0.0.16
- IBM App Connect Enterprise Version 188.8.131.52 + LAD76278
The software configurations are supported by IBM System x3650 M3 hardware with two Intel Xeon X5660 CPUs, six cores each, running at 2.8 GHz with hyperthreading disabled. The test systems have 32 GB of RAM installed.
We compare the performance of the following two software products, testing each on both of the above two system configurations:
We note that for the purposes of this report, interim fix LAD76278 is installed on top of IBM App Connect Enterprise Version 184.108.40.206. This fix is planned for inclusion in the next maintenance release of IBM App Connect Enterprise Version 11. To ensure the verifiability of the results presented here, we have made this fix available for download on Fix Central for Windows and Linux. We do not intend to build this fix in combination with other fixes. Customers wishing to benefit from the functionality of LAD76278 in combination with other fixes should wait for and upgrade to the release of 220.127.116.11.
