This article is part of ArangoDB’s open-source performance benchmark series. Since the previous post, there are new versions of competing software on which to benchmark. Plus, there are some major changes to ArangoDB software.
For instance, in latest versions of ArangoDB, an additional storage engine based on Facebook’s RocksDB has been included. So we waited until its integration was finished before conducting a new benchmark test. Besides all of these factors, machines are now faster, so a new benchmark made sense.
Before I get into the benchmark specifics and results, I want to send a special thanks to Hans-Peter Grahsl for his fantastic help with MongoDB queries. Wrapping my head around the JSON notation is for sure not impossible but boy can querying data be complicated. Thanks Hans-Peter for your help! Also a special thanks to Mark, Michael and Jan from our team for their excellent and tireless work on this benchmark.
