CLIPS Performance Evaluation

  • Hi,
    Can I get CLIPS performance evaluations tests ?
    I am planning to integrate the kernel into a custom application in which I would be firing events at the rate of 50 events per seconds (rules base would be of the size of no more than 50 rules).

    Anybody is aware of any limitation that this system has against some high performance situations ?

    • (and I would keep the facts for a duration > 5mn in main memory)

      Performance is highly dependent upon the program. I've run a 703 rule program that fired 222,200 rules per second and an 8 rule program that fired 2,600 rules per second. Your best bet for getting reasonable estimates is creating some sample rules and running some data through them.
