Aspose.Words performance

Hi Aspose

I have som questions regarding performance of the Apose.Words component.

How does the component perform? What is the throughput in different scenarios. My scenario is that we need to make a mail merge with three data sources, one which is an address and the other two dynamic tables. I need to produce up to 300.000 documents pr. batch. Is that possible and how long time would it take and on what hardware?

Hi Lars,

We are working on an article that will cover Aspose.Words performance and benchmarking right now. I hope it will be available later in December.

But even with the article you would need to try that yourself as a lot depends on the document type/size. If a document is reasonably simple e.g. an insurance contract or so it will work hundreds or even thousands documents per second. Depends on what output formats do you need, for example output to PDF by definition will require more time than export to DOC or DOCX because page layout needs to be done and fonts subsetted etc.
