Hi,<br />Has anyone made any load tests for Liferay?<br />I wonder how Liferay performs when for example 500 users use it at the same time. What resources are needed to run Liferay quickly for large amount of users - server&#39;s memory etc.

The answer will depend much on the portlet you use. I will conduct a series of load- and stress testing soon, so if you have a particular interest, let me know, what you want to be benchmarked.

Check out <a href='http://www.lglifeisgood.com' target='_blank'>http://www.lglifeisgood.com</a><br /><br />This site had thousands of college students who posted pics and got voted by users. LG uses it to promote their products.<br /><br />It&#39;s built on top of Liferay and scales very well.<br /><br />Another example is <a href='http://www.educa.madrid.org/portal/' target='_blank'>http://www.educa.madrid.org/portal/</a> which has over 500,000 students across 1,600 schools using it. They use a cluster of Sun servers.

Hi,<br />I didn&#39;t find anything looking like LEP in www.educa.madrid.org/portal. I found PHP, plain JSP etc. Where can I see LEP?<br />So long

<br />
<br /><br />It looks like you would have to login to see the portal deployment (http://www.educa.madrid.org/portal/c/pub/acceso). But unfortunately, since this is live, non-users cannot access this portal.

It&#39;s a site for students who go to school in Madrid, Spain. It uses the portal for the interactive part, but you have to login. (Sorry, they didn&#39;t give me any accounts that I can give away).

Is it possible to have feedback from these users concerning deployment infrastructure ? All these portals have in common that I could not find any contact information. Do you have direct contact and invite them to quickly share their solutions ?<br /><br />Having some feedback concerning the sizing would give people some ideas about the hardware used to drive portals based on Liferay. We ll know this is of course dependent on the portlets but it would be interesting already to have some figures.<br /><br />I (and probably other) must recommend some hardware infrastructure to deploy Liferay-based portals, and it would give us an order of magnitude.<br /><br />Cheers,

A 5 thousand dollar Intel server would easily handle several thousand users. The demo site uses cheap AMD boxes we built ourselves, cost us about 1k each. We have 3 of them. They scale quite well as we get about 3-5 concurrent hits a second from the demo.<br /><br />If your company needs professional support for sizing questions, feel free to contact us direct at staff@liferay.com and we can set you up with a professional service account. The cost for professional support can be found at : <a href='http://www.liferay.com/services/' target='_blank'>http://www.liferay.com/services/</a><br />

Brian, at the moment I&#39;m all at recommending a portal infrastructure for a client, it involves looking at several portals (including commercial ones). Some commercial ones are not so expensive upfront considering that they ship with extensive collaboration components (which can easily be distributed as well). <br /><br />Liferay Portal is at the top of my list for now for various reasons, and if the deal is closed, it is my intentions to associate Liferay staff for some developpement.<br /><br />That said, I&#39;m far from a closed deal as the discussion with the client will run for more than 6 months. It means a lot of resources already dedicated for that (and possibly wasted ) and I&#39;m not in a position right now to spend too much otherwise the company will be in bankruptcy before the end <!--emo&emoticon--><img src='@theme_images_path@/emotions/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' /><!--endemo-->

<br /><br />could You give us some numbers? how fast are they, what amount of RAM do You have? etc.

Interesting discussion, thanks.

My purely JSP server (AMD64, SuSE ES 10) can handle 600,000 requests per day (which could be possibly few thousands of "concurrent users"); bottleneck is Internet gateway (dedicated ADSL).

I am looking a way to tune LifeRay. SUN Cluster is not the right way to go. Of course, single "HelloWorld" JSP is the base point for any performance benchmarks. Few hundreds/thousands of TPS. And "mean time" is also important.

Unfortunately, looks like LifeRay is many thousands times slower than "HelloWorld.JSP"... How can we improve it? Spending 100,000 on IBM Blade Center is expensive.
Thanks
