Abstract

This investigation focuses on the performance analysis of one of the most nascent Blockchain frameworks, Hyperledger Iroha. This paper evaluates the performance of the Hyperledger Iroha framework based on three parameters: (a) total requests per seconds (RPS) over time; (b) response times in milliseconds over time; and (c) number of users in the network over time. The results indicate that the integration of Hyperledger Iroha with a major livestock management and trading platform in the UK, can support at least 200 participants with no errors in the network. Additionally, the total requests per second can reach as high as 40.6, and the response times are in the order of a fraction of a second. This research and its results can assist scholars and practitioners regarding selection of an ideal Blockchain framework for their problem setting.
