Pre-installation planning guide
• Only send relevant data
• Extra data incurs extra processing cost
• Enable cleanup to keep database volume manageable
• Always use raw, canonical, target item cleanups
• Published item cleanup with adequate delay is ideal
• Check special database concerns
• Oracle 11g query plans
• MS SQL index fragmentation

Hardware Guidelines
• Determine required KPIs and plan accordingly

• Hybris Commerce must be sized to handle the inbound load


• Data Hub can not increase the impex speed of Commerce
• To increase Data Hub performance
• Add more memory and increase batch sizes
• Increase concurrency by dividing across pools – with enough cores available

• Data Hub
• Business domain

Performance / Stability
• Documented steps and guidelines not followed

• Unstable infrastructure – the basics must work!


• DB Connection issues
• System to System connectivity issues
• Inadequate System Architecture
• DB resources should NOT be shared by Commerce and DataHub in any significant sized project
• Every subsystem must be sized appropriately
