#dominoforever | Product Ideas Portal

Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Forum! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated by HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

SPR BBSZ9YAMBX Speed up server performance using AES encryption

Studies and tests have been conducted that show that if you use AES encryption, this increases the response time to the databases and overall system performance. This causes software slowdown.

The change request was made in SPR BBSZ9YAMBX. I ask you to support, since there is little appeal on this issue now and it is not planned to fix it in the near future

    If speed and server performance are your main objectives, then LZ1 attachment compression and DAOS attachment deduplication may be more suitable. (already available)

    Database encryption is also already available in three flavors, but may be less beneficial for speed and performance than the other options already mentioned.

    "decrease in response time" and this is a kind of metaphor, because we had everything in general, we, as an end user, notice degradation in the speed of servers and databases in general.

    I think there may be an ambiguity in your description. "increase of response time" means slower. Did you mean "decrease in response time"?

    As far as I understand, most of the performance increase is based on the fact that encrypted data is actually compressed. If less blocks have to be read from disk, it should be faster.

    Please notice, that Notes databases can be enabled to use compression and attachment deduplication, which may create a similar, or even faster level of performance than AES encryption.
