OFBiz performance enhancement

Giulio Speri - MpStyle Srl
Hello everyone,

I would like to ask you some suggestion on improving performances of our
eCommerce site
We're monitoring our jvm  with NewRelic tool and response times are quite
good, and the server on which ofbiz run has minimal cpu/ram usage, but
customers often complains slowness in page loading.

Which components of OFBiz should we change or on which other aspects should
we work on to get better performances (eg: database, catalina servlet
container, Tomcat..) ?

​Thank you in advance,

Giulio​

Hi Giulio,

have you already considered the production setup guide in [1]?

If yes, we will need some more information as there are many possible
performance issues (network, configuration etc.).

What database are you using? If you're using the the default Derby database, there's your problem.

If you're on Postgres, make sure you tune it.
http://pgtune.leopard.in.ua/

Also if you're on Postgres make sure you're running a VACUUM at least weekly. Out of the box Postgres is set pretty conservative so it can run well on small VMs.

If you're hosting the site in a generic virtual machine or AWS EC2 be aware that the IO performance on these systems is pretty lousy. Nowadays I'd recommend just using Amazon RDS so you don't have to mess with it.

Or just do like most folks and throw more RAM at your system and see if that helps. :)

Re: OFBiz performance enhancement

Thanks for the suggestions.
Out OFBiz istance is running on a server hosted by Aruba, with 16 CPU and
32 GB of RAM; we changed jvm ofbiz memory start parameters to 20GB of max
memory (and monitoring the memory usage with OFBiz Webtools, I see that is
always between 3-10 GB).
The dbms we are using is MariaDB a fork of MySQL(the OS on the server is
CentOS 7 and MariaDB is installed by default on it).

At the moment I'm trying to set caching control in the embedded Tomcat,
adding the filter class ExpiresFilters in web.xml file of our eCommerce web
application, but I can't see anything changed in HTTP headers (always and
only cache-control: no cache).
I basically followed the set up guide of Tomcat (
https://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-7.0-doc/config/filter.html), but no luck.
Is it the right way to set up cache control for the embedded Tomcat of
OFBiz?

We've tested our website also with PingDom tools, and gives us swinging
page loading times (from 2 sec up to 12 sec); the only thing that we
noticed using that tool, is that a good number of images give error and are
not loaded, but we cannot understand why (the link to the image works!).
On different pages of our site, we used AJAX to retrieve url of images:
could this be the problem?

Honestly we are quite in difficulty to understand why is this happening.

If needed I could share my ofbiz_component.xml for the settings of catalina
connectors that we are using.

Hi Giulio,
Did you optimize your Apache http server ? I'd look at that too..
Try increasing the cache expire interval, also try consolidating CSS & JS files.
I also noticed that you are running wordpress on the server for the blog - not sure why though. You could build one with ofbiz too..

Check all of your connection limits. If memory serves, there are tomcat connection limits and database connection limits and these can be fairly conservative out of the box.

If your image requests are being served by tomcat/ofbiz, (which is not a great idea, better to keep those directly served), then you may be hitting those limits pretty quickly.

Use chrome devtools and check the network tab, see what’s actually taking a long time to load.

Also check and repair your databased indexes, they might be fragmented like crazy if you haven’t been maintaining them:

Thank you very much Paul, I will check all those things out and test the
site again!
