NoSQL Performance Series: Couchbase

NoSQL Performance Series: Couchbase 

Bigstep Cloud Limited- , 2014.

This is the first of a series of performance benchmarks on NoSQL DBs that we plan to share with you. Our goal is to understand the various scaling profiles of distributed database technologies as well as identify environments that provide optimum performance/price. Many of our findings can be applied to on premise infrastructure as well and even some cloud scenarios.

This performance benchmark on Couchbase shows sub-millisecond response times but also a difference between GET/PUT operations and QUERY operations when multiple instances are added to the cluster. We have also tested the Memory-Access-Time sensitivity of Couchbase.


We used the following infrastructure for the tests:

 10 FMCI 16.192 instances with 2 x Intel Xeon E5-2690 CPUs (8 physical cores at 2.9 GHz each) and 192 GB of RAM for Couchbase nodes.

 2 FMCI 20.128 instances with 2 x Intel Xeon E5-2690v2 CPUs (10 physical cores at 3 GHz each) and 128GB of RAM for JMeter loader nodes.

These nodes were connected with two independent 10 Gbps networks, one for the actual loading and inter-node communication and the other one for backend inter-loader communication. Also the nodes were connected to our Solid Store iSCSI Block Storage via a third independent 10 Gbps link per node.
