WS38: Enterprise class deployment for GeoServer and GeoWebcache: Optimizing performances and robustness


Trainers: Daniel Koch (terrestris GmbH & Co. KG), Nils B├╝hner (terrestris GmbH & Co. KG), Andre Henn (terrestris GmbH & Co. KG), Simone Giannecchini (GeoSolutions)

Schedule: Tuesday Noon 14-18

Places: 30


This workshop will also take place on Monday Morning



This workshop will provide guidance and hands on experience on how to optimize the performance of OGC services using GeoServer and GeoWebCache, including: Load testing a OGC service with JMeter (this skills will be used to measure the improvements got with the other improvements) Optimizing vector and raster data for the needs of Web GIS workloads Optimize styling to provide a good balance between map navigability and performance, identifying common performance pitfalls in the styling options Comparing output formats performance and network usage Configuring WMS/WFS/WCS service limits to ensure stability resource usage fairness Setting up the control-flow extension to tune each service to its maximum performance Setting up caching with GWC for the background layers, identify layers and situations that are not suitable for caching Using the monitoring extension to control the server in production and identify sources of trouble (long request, clients making too many/too heavy requests, layers and services used the most that could use more tuning attention)

In order to participate to the workshop a basic knowledge of GeoServer, OGC services, SLD styling is recommended.
