5 performance tips for Node.js applications

Nodejs logo

Node.js is single-threaded and uses non-blocking I/O, allowing it to scale and support tens of thousands of concurrent operations.

It shares these architectural characteristics with NGINX and solves the C10K problem – supporting more than 10,000 concurrent connections – that NGINX was also invented to solve. Node.js is well-known for high performance and developer productivity.

So, what could possibly go wrong?

Node.js has a few weak points and vulnerabilities that can make Node-based systems prone to underperformance or even crashes. Problems arise more frequently when a Node.js-based web application experiences rapid traffic growth.

Also, Node.js is a great tool for creating and running application logic that produces the core, variable content for your web page. But it’s not so great for serving static content – images and JavaScript files, for example – or load balancing across multiple servers.

To get the most out of Node.js, you need to cache static content, to proxy and load balance among multiple application servers, and to manage port contention between clients, Node.js, and helpers, such as servers running Socket.IO. NGINX can be used for all of these purposes, making it a great tool for Node.js performance tuning.

Use these tips to improve Node.js application performance: Continue reading.
