However, there still was one major problem: Jira limited scalability caused by the existent Lucene indexing infrastructure, which was affected mainly by two problems:
- Synchronous execution of CPU-intensive operations, causing "standard" operations like issue creation to last dozen and dozen seconds on heavy, concurrent, load.
- Too coarse grained locks guarding CPU-intensive code blocks, causing true scalability bottlenecks.
Aside from bug fixes and the upgrade to Jira 3.12.3, this will be the main driving force toward the final 1.1 release: making the new indexing infrastructure robust, fast, and scalable.
And as always, we need your help: so do not hesitate to give it a try and let us know every kind of feedback!
