Our Solution

  • A well-structured approach was put into action/deployed by the team, providing the client with an exhaustive review of system vulnerabilities and recommendations to get rid off them.
  • A Performance Benchmarking exercise was conducted to gauge the system capacity. This helped evaluate whether the IT infrastructure could handle the surge in transaction volumes without compromising service levels.
  • With thorough Architecture Review across the stack three failure points surfaced that had majorly hampered system's performance. The key factors were namely- slow DB queries, low server capacity and blocked calls by external server.
  • The MySQL database was reviewed at the architecture, query, instance and I/O level to identify performance improvement prospects.
  • The infrastructure was examined to identify bottlenecks in the CPU, storage and network.
  • The application server performance was analyzed to identify optimizations via thread, memory and connection pool management.
