Performance issue: Datatype

Hi friends,

In datatype fileds if the field name has more charecters then performance will vary..

for example

Datatype fileds name System payment id if we change to SPI then how much does it effect the performance of the interface..

I have developed an interface with full names if we change datatype again ineed to do mapping and all the stuff.. please suggest me how much effect it places in performance..

Regards

vijay

    Hi,

    There won't be much difference in the performance. Say for example you have the xml tag name with length 10.

    <customer01>

    </customer01>

    Each character would represent 1 byte. So in your XI IE when it processes the above xml it would load around 27bytes size of data into memory.

    whereas if you have a simple tag

    <cust>

    </cust>

    it would be only 13 bytes.

    If your message size is large for example 100MB then changing the size would make some improvement in performance. Whereas if your size of the message is around 10MB then it won't make any difference, it would in fact bring up your development time by doing the message mapping changes..

    Thanks,

    Hi Vijay,

    This doesn't really matter. There wont be any performance issue using either of the field names.

    Performance issues are generally when say large files (above 100MB or so) are to be parsed via XI. There could be performance issues when using too many process steps in BPM. This consumes a lot of system memory.
