I am running a performance test on MC 1.0.6 on AWS c5.4xlarge instance (single node).
Using 10 worker on the same machine (so no network latency) which are sending as fast as possible (but synchronoulys) and writing random key-values to the root stream. (key: 64Byte, value: 128byte)
I recognized a slow but steady drop in throughput of tx/s.
Tx/s started at 1100 and are getting lower over time. At the moment the Tx/s rate is only at 440 and that was 24 hours after I started the test.
CPU is constantly at 20%
Memory is slowly rising: https://snapshot.raintank.io/dashboard/snapshot/eOEmIrenI3uQ00LKqvOktbk7UsmRp8HR
High disk usage (blocks-folder is small, seems to be indexing)
Is this an expected behaviour? I am quite curious how far the tx rate will drop, since we are already below our minimum expectation.
