TPS Background Introduction

Transaction Per Second (TPS) is the number of transactions executed per second. This means, for a duration of one second, we can test how executions can be performed in that time frame. However, due to the uniqueness of different consensus mechanisms, many public blockchains will have different TPS results. Are the TPS results made by public blockchains reliable or trustworthy? In order to discover the actual performance of well-known public chains, we invited senior software developers to write some test scripts.

TPS Test Method

In reference to the top blockchain test methods, the following is the method used for the first test:

1) Unified test environment, including hardware and operating system;

2) Considering the characteristics of the smart contract transactions, the type of transactions tested is just ordinary transfer transactions;

3) In order to avoid the influence of network factors, a single node (with multiple miners) will be used for this test.

Use “./coind -datadir=. getblock | grep txnumber” to query the number of transactions included in the specified block.

Using the starting block 10 and the terminating block 20 in TPS press measurement as shown below.

waykichain, blockchain, tps

Calculated the mean of the transactions for each block of 10 consecutive blocks:

Test Environment

Docker version 18.06.1-ce, build e68fc7a
[email protected]:/# cat /proc/version
Linux version 4.4.0-93-generic ([email protected]) (gcc version 4.8.4 (Ubuntu 4.8.4- 2ubuntu1~14.04.3) ) #116~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Mon Aug 14 16:07:05 UTC 2017

The test was based on private test networks.

Test Result

Conducted multiple sets of tests. After the test program runs for 5 mins, through the interface getBlockByNumber scanning, the number of transactions included in each test block is divided by the block production interval time to obtain TPS.

The partial log record selected in a stable test period of about 100s follows, the average TPS is 854.

blockchain, tps, waykichain

Peak =1714.

Though these mainstream public blockchains have their own program language and consensus mechanism, by using different test methods, we can get the tested average TPS and peak TPS. Among these, Ontology and WaykiChain have the higher tested TPS than their officially released TPS.

The competition between public chains is the competition of stability, security, usability, and efficiency, so strengthening the technical security and stability of the entire public chain is vital. High-performance transaction processing capabilities and efficient consensus mechanisms are the essential parts of creating a stable and secure ecosystem environment for blockchain developers and users.
