I finally got the entire project running and got the metrics I needed in order to do my presentation next week. I managed to take 15.6 million records and push them into the cache, performed 6.3 million key lookups, and 800k region lookups with tags in just under one hour. All on my laptop!!! This same workload was captured from an hours worth of processing from 64 application servers with 5 database servers. So far, I’m very much impressed. More details of this to follow when I can produce examples for public consumption.
