Jira 7 vs Jira 8 performance (comparison) Edited

Petr Vaníček Community Leader Mar 07, 2019

The Atlassian release of Jira 8 advertises, among other things, a significant improvement in performance. In CoreIT s.r.o. we did not let trust to him so much and we checked it out ourselves. We created two identical instances - version 7.13 and version 8.0 - and tested several performance factors that showed the improvement is indeed noticeable. Proof can be seen in the picture below.

What is your experience after upgrade to new Jira 8? Did you experience something similar?

Maybe later with 8.1 ans I also think it's already supported, but it's not. I tried run it with Java 11, but I got error for 2 system plugins with "We haven't been able to start all the required system plugins"

Hi @Evgeniy_Russkikh

so I just tried thi with 8.1 EAP03 (so really early version of Jira 8.1) and results are worst in compare of Jira 8.0 and also 7.13 with Java 1.8. I will update results when 8.1 will be published, because for now it could be becasue of early development state.

Hi! 

Thanks for that post.

it will be awesome, if you provide jvm parameters both instances. 

 

Cheers,

Both instances has 3000 MB for both values - nothing else wasn't changed.
