Couple of questions about the performance statistics


We are looking into using eventstore and have some questions about the performance and how it scales.

Are the reads/writes per second sustained rates, or busts?

Does the fact that you are writing to a single stream or many streams affect the performance?

Can we increase the rates by adding servers to the cluster?

I tried to find the answers to these questions in the group already but apart from the second question (which i believe is answered here) I wasn’t able to find the information.

Thanks in advance


The reads/writes/second should be able to be sustained (I can do much more on my laptop than say 15k writes) that said what hardware you run on is very important. One stream vs many is not really a measurable difference. In terms of scaling at the small level just sharding across a few clusters should take most to what they need to be.
