Azure Blob Storage Benchmark

July 25, 2019 - Søren Alsbjerg Hørup

Another quick benchmark I did regarding azure was the transfer of 65K messages to an Azure Blob Storage.

My test application was a .NET Core Console application that:

  • Created 1000 tasks.
  • Each tasks would instantiate a message with a unique GUID and populate the message with a payload of 65K.
  • Each task would then push the message to the Blob Storage.
  • This process would be repeated 1000 times.

In total, 1000 x 1000 Blobs were created, transmitted and stored during the run of the application.

The results were that my app was consuming 28% of my CPU and using 600Mbit/s worth of bandwidth - which is the limit of my upload.

Clearly, Azure is not the limiting factor here, neither is my CPU.
