SSD vs. HDD

In environments with high traffic rates and local reporting enabled, at least one log message per request is written to the disk, creating a high number of IOPS. Therefore, we recommend the use of SSD-based storage over HDDs in these setups.

RAM

Airlock Gateway automatically tunes the scalability settings for critical system components depending on the amount of installed RAM. The scalability settings are tuned for systems with up to 256 GB of installed RAM.

Servers that have even more installed RAM are tuned like servers that have exactly the mentioned amount of installed RAM. This means that most performance metrics will not improve anymore. The maximum number of requests per second and the maximum number of concurrent connections will stay on a similar level.
