User:Mmd/Overpass API/Performance Project 2016
The aim of the Overpass performance project is to identify bottlenecks in the current version 0.7.52, and provide concrete suggestions on how the overall performance can be improved. Those improvements are included in a branch called 0.7.54_mmd (see details below) and are published as pull requests and/or prototypes for inclusion into the master Overpass branch after further review and cleanups.
While some improvements target very specific use cases, the focus of this project phase is to measure actual improvements – and of course potential regressions – based on a set of queries taken from productive logfiles on overpass-api.de. Each query needs to have at least a runtime of 5 seconds to qualify. In total this amounts to about 3000 relevant queries with identical queries being filtered out beforehand.
For each version, the database was populated with the same OSM planet before starting measurements. No further database updates were run afterwards to have exactly the same database contents for all measurements. Also, attic data (“previous OSM object versions”) was out of scope due to the long time to prepare the database. This is planned for the next project phase where fast SSDs need to be deployed on the Dev Instance.
All measurements are automatically executed three times in a row in sequential mode. Statistics for each run are also automatically collected for later upload to this wiki. It is important to note that only the third run for each query counts towards statistics.
Initial DB Import
|Version 0.7.52||Version 0.7.54_mmd||Difference (in %)|
Full area creation (no delta mode) using areas.osm3s rules file.
|Version 0.7.52||Version 0.7.54_mmd||Difference (in %)|
Remark: Process step is mostly CPU bound. Actual runtime for 0.7.52 version on dev instance about 15-17 hours according to previous measurements by Roland, though running at 1.75x CPU speed. Area creation using version 0.7.54_mmd is estimated to run for about 6 hours on dev instance.
Long running queries on production
The following list contains measurements for about 2500 queries, which took longer than 5 seconds on production. They originate from a log file dated 2015-12-17.
Each query was run 3 times and only the last measurement is included in the spreadsheet. Columns cover the number of the query (Ctrl-click follows a hyperlink to the actual query), user time, system time, combined user/system time, Elapsed (wall clock) time, return code (rc), as well as the percentage of time spent on CPU. All values were provided by the time command line tool.
Slower queries are most likely due to UTF-8 handling in PCRE, which is used in Version 0.7.54_mmd, while 0.7.52 uses POSIX regular expressions instead.

Overpass API versions
The following two versions were used for runtime measurements:
- Version 0.7.52: Baseline: master branch (0.7.52), minor issues branch merged on top, HEAD: commit 291bf9599facb4b6567446b02b8a9c6c9a4787ba
- Version 0.7.54_mmd: Branch test_way_diffs, HEAD: commit 43a2b6e404130f4384f232a78335e88bb679ebaf
Compiled with CXXFLAGS=-O3

NB: Buffer command line tool is used to maximize CPU utilization of the update_database process.
Changes to rules file: timeout and element limited increased to avoid timeout/out of memory:
