Only 10 times bigger

/by apr on propaganda jPOS speed/ While reading about how Open Source is essencial to Paypal’s success I was impressed to see Paypal processes about U$S 1500 every second of every day and that’s only 10 times bigger than some of our jPOS sites running in a couple of Intel boxes and probably only 5 times bigger than The Gladiators’ upcoming system. BTW, I recently got word that a large financial institution (really really large) was using jPOS to test their own legacy systems and (with some changes to the ISOMsg class in order to pre-allocate fields) they managed to get 330k pack/unpack operations per second on a Sun 32-WAY system. Not bad, huh?
