About CDM Benchmarking

CDM Benchmarks provides instructions for running lightweight benchmarks to give you a means for validating your own CDM deployment.

The Cloud Deployment Team runs the same benchmark tests. Our results are available upon request from ForgeRock. To get them, contact your ForgeRock sales representative.

We conduct our tests using the configurations specified for small, medium, and large CDM clusters. We create our clusters using the techniques described in the CDM documentation.

Next, we create test users:

  • 1,000,000 test users for a small cluster.

  • 10,000,000 test users for a medium cluster.

  • 100,000,000 test users for a large cluster.

Finally, we run tests that measure authentication rates and OAuth 2.0 authorization code flow performance.

If you follow the same method of deploying the CDM and running benchmarks, the results you obtain should be similar to ForgeRock’s results. However, factors beyond the scope of the CDM, or a failure to use our documented sizing and configuration, may affect your benchmark test results. These factors might include (but are not limited to): updates to cloud platform SDKs; changes to third-party software required for Kubernetes; changes you have made to sizing or configuration to suit your business needs.

The CDM is designed to:

  • Conform to DevOps best practices

  • Facilitate continuous integration and continuous deployment

  • Scale and deploy on any Kubernetes environment in the cloud

If you require higher performance than the benchmarks reported here, you can scale your deployment horizontally and vertically. Vertically scaling ForgeRock Identity Platform works particularly well in the cloud. For more information about scaling your deployment, contact your qualified ForgeRock partner or technical consultant.
