Performance Considerations
Managing Contention
If two transactions attempt to perform a cache operation on the same element, the following rules apply:
*The first transaction gets access
*The following transactions block on the cache operation until either the first transaction completes or the transaction timeout occurs.
Note: When an element is involved in a transaction, it is replaced with a new element with a marker that is locked, along with the transaction ID.
What Granularity of Locking is Used?
BigMemory Go uses soft locks stored in the Element itself and is on a key basis.
Performance Comparisons
Any transactional cache adds an overhead, which is significant for writes and nearly negligible for reads. Compared to transactionalMode="off", the time it takes to perform writes will be noticeably slower with either "xa" or "local" specified, and "xa_strict" will be the slowest.
