How to check performance of blockchain developed using MultiChain ?

+4 votes

We want to develop a system having multiple nodes. How can we check the scalability of the system, if there are couple of million users, and couple of million new records every day?

Do we need to code this in python or any simulator available for this scenario?

Yes, just write a small script in whatever language you like which publishes data in a loop. We recommend running your tests on the latest version, 2.2.1 beta 1, which has increased network capacity.

Please note that a node will scale fine to publishing millions of items daily. And a blockchain will scale fine to handling millions of users / address. But an individual node will not scale well to holding millions of addresses in its own wallet.
