Sun StorageTek 5800 System Client API Reference Guide

Performance and Scalability

Starting the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) incurs a performance penalty, but once the JVM is running, you can use the client object archive repeatedly and from multiple threads. I/O is synchronous (blocking). HTTP connections are pooled for performance. You should instantiate one instance of the NameValueObjectArchive per 5800 system server and use it for all access to that server until exit.
