Just finished doing some rough speed tests having got RelStorage up and
running against an Oracle 10g database using Oracle's InstantClient and
The tests involved basically creating 10 folders, each with 10 pages in
them, in a Plone site, using zope.testbrowser.
FileStorage-over-ZEO managed the test in 3 mins 20 seconds
Relatorage-to-Oracle managed the test in 3 mins 18 seconds
So, not much in it, and shows that RelStorage is still a "good thing"
(tm) even attached to Oracle :-)
I'd be really interested to try some tests with multiple ZEO clients
attached to a FileStorage versus multiple RelStorage client attached to
Oracle. I suspect Oracle would win ;-)
