Tips For Tuning TIBCO BW (BusinessWorks) Performance

By | December 2, 2013

TIBCO Business Works is one of the most widely used module of TIBCO Software Suite.  TIBCO Business Works is considered highly scalable, robust and reliable platform for developing and designing Integration business processes.  Business Works Engine runs on JVM (Java Virtual Machine). Following configuration changes for JVM can greatly help in improving and fine tuning TIBCO Active Matrix Business Works performance:

BW Engine Heap Size:

The amount of memory to be used by BW engine is defined in  bwengine.tra and designer.tra configuration files. By changing the value of this parameter can help tuning TIBCO Business Works performance.

For example, in my TIBCO installation, I changed this value from 256M to 512M which greatly improved my BW Engine performance.



Java Objects Garbage Collection:

Garbage collection is the process of destroying Java objects to release the memory being used. Well optimized garbage collection helps in efficient utilization of memory resources. You can tune performance of Tibco Business Works by changing Java garbage collection parameters in the configuration file.

You can set the Java memory parameters by using the option in the bwengine.tra configuration file.

For example, specify the following in the bwengine.tra to set the heap size to 512M and retrieve the garbage collection metrics for the engine. -Xms512m -Xmx512m -verbose:gc
