Benchmarking

After installing FSI Server you should verify that the hardware you are using is capable of handling the amount of traffic and requests you are expecting to see. As these numbers are not always predictable and as the actual performance highly depends on your use case, FSI Server comes with a built-in benchmark, allowing you to compare your servers performance to a reference system.

The reference system is designed to satisfy the requirements of an average medium sized business. The benchmark consists of six different tests, measuring the performance of different hardware components. At the end of each test an index is calculated, allowing the comparison with the reference system.

The benchmark will summarize the results of these tests to two overall values, one being system performance (CPU and memory bandwidth) and the other being I/O performance (disk read and write operations). This allows to locate performance bottlenecks before integrating the server into the production environment.
