Our next major release ArangoDB 2.6 is on the finishing straight with an early alpha2 version for Linux released today.
UPDATE: New alpha3 release available.
We put great efforts in speeding-up core ArangoDB functionality to make AQL queries perform much better than in earlier versions of ArangoDB.
The queries that improved most in 2.6 over 2.5 include:
FILTERconditions we’ve tested are 3 to 5 times faster
- simple joins using the primary index (
_keyattribute), hash index or skiplist index are 2 to 3.5 times faster
- sorting on a string attribute is 2.5 to 3 times faster
- extracting the
_keyor other top-level attributes from documents is 4 to 5 times faster
COLLECTstatements we’ve tested are 7 to 15 times faster
