Detecting, processing, and persisting RFID tag events require efficient interactions and communications among RFID tag readers, data
capture components, message queuing servers, application servers, and database systems. In order to maximize throughput with an acceptable response time, all of these components must be tuned to obtain maximum performance.

Obtaining optimal performance tuning is critically dependent on the specific use cases and load requirements that will be experienced by the deployed systems.

This IBM Redpaper describes a set of load scenarios and test cases and a methodology for measuring the performance of WebSphere RFID Premises Server For these load scenarios, a set of optimal tunings for WebSphere RFID Premises Server and related software components are provided. These tunings should provide a basis for obtaining optimal performance when deploying your own RFID solution using WebSphere RFID Premises Server

This Redpaper is intended for IT specialists and developers who develop and deploy solutions for WebSphere Premises Server V6.0.0.1.
