Chapter 25. Performance tuning considerations with KIE Server

The following key concepts or suggested practices can help you optimize KIE Server performance. These concepts are summarized in this section as a convenience and are explained in more detail in the cross-referenced documentation, where applicable. This section will expand or change as needed with new releases of Red Hat Process Automation Manager.

Ensure that development mode is enabled during development

You can set KIE Server or specific projects in Business Central to use production mode or development mode. By default, KIE Server and all new projects in Business Central are in development mode. This mode provides features that facilitate your development experience, such as flexible project deployment policies, and features that optimize KIE Server performance during development, such as disabled duplicate GAV detection. Use development mode until your Red Hat Process Automation Manager environment is established and completely ready for production mode.

For more information about configuring the environment mode or duplicate GAV detection, see the following resources:

Adapt KIE Server capabilities and extensions to your specific needs

The capabilities in KIE Server are determined by plug-in extensions that you can enable, disable, or further extend to meet your business needs. By default, KIE Server extensions are exposed through REST or JMS data transports and use predefined client APIs. You can extend existing KIE Server capabilities with additional REST endpoints, extend supported transport methods beyond REST or JMS, or extend functionality in the KIE Server client.

This flexibility in KIE Server functionality enables you to adapt your KIE Server instances to your business needs, instead of adapting your business needs to the default KIE Server capabilities.

For information about enabling, disabling, or extending KIE Server capabilities, see Chapter 24, KIE Server capabilities and extensions.
