Measured performance data
The throughput data provided here is the average performance for different subscription numbers achieved in performance testing under specific operating conditions and is subject to change when any of the hardware and software variables changes. Use this data for a rough reference only.
|Subscriptions||Input numbers||Throughput (KB/s)||Throughput (GB/day)|
For heavy data ingestion scenarios, change the default Acknowledgment Deadline of your subscription from 10 seconds to 60 seconds for optimal performance and to avoid data duplication.
