Hi Andrea,

Thanks for your help. I also found the log in GeoWebCache and did a comparison 
with non populated tile cache :-).

I thought I would double check by asking the list to cover all the bases - in 
case it's used elsewhere.

Thanks again.

Hi Rini,
that log is actually from GeoWebCache, so a proper performance comparison 
should be done
by hitting a non yet populated tile cache and force GWC to popupate it... like 
a seeding operation
for example.

That said, the JAI "crop" operation is actually doing nothing, it's just making 
the image look smaller
to the callers by changing its origin, width and height (thus metadata),
so I don't see how a native extension can make any difference. From the javadoc 
of CropOpImage:

 * <p> Tiles that are completely inside or intersect the cropped region
 * (this image's bounds) are simply forwarded from the source.  Do NOT
 * create a child raster even if a tile is not contained in this image's
 * bounds.  Tiles that are outside the croppped region result in a
 * <code>null</code> return.

My guess is that the comment actually relates to an issue in the Java JPEG 
encoder that fails
to encode properly shifted images (ones with origin not 0,0). However this 
should have been
fixed in the meantime.
Simone, do you remember any better?

To see if the code still has any merit, one should try to remove the 
BufferedImage extraction code here
and see if that actually makes any difference:

It is also to be noted that GeoServer is using its own metatile subclass, with 
entirely different code, it would be nice to just push back
the override, but I'm not 100% sure it's possible (due to dependencies that 
might be available in GeoServer, but not in GeoWebCache):

But yeah, in the context of GeoServer that warning is just noise, since the 
code depending on that variable is not even executed.

Hi list,

We notice a warning about Native JAI not being installed in the log files. I 
did a simple WMS GetMap performance comparison with and without native JAI, and 
they seem to be pretty much the same. Does anyone know if/how native JAI affect 

WARN [layer.MetaTile] - ********* Native JAI is not installed, meta tile 
cropping may be slow ********
