  • How much overhead does nodejs graphql have?...

    In the end like all performance questions you'll have to measure it. Persisted queries, and even more extreme approaches, like a GraphQL JIT ( can remove a lot of the overhead.
  • PSA don't use Datadog agent in a GraphQL project

    We faced something similar. To improve GraphQL performance, we use graphql-jit. We turned off all other tracing that datadog turns on by default. Then, we then wrote a custom tracer to connect graphql-jit to dd-trace. Hopefully this same pattern works for you!

    so I guess the difference is instead of having totally generic functions that parse the query every time, instead you can call a factory function up front to get a specialised function for a particular query

    and V8 JIT can make that faster

    JS has always been special & excellent because it allows multiphase programming. That one coild just add more code has been unique versus the world of statuc languages, where maybe youcd have some tool to generate stubs for Thrift or gRPC, then compule that in to your program. Which works ok, if and only if you know ahead of time what schemas you might need. Im these cases, you have to give up on stub code & start using more interprtted systems.

    The advantages in js have been colossal, often an easy order of magnitude win to compile selectors & queries & other fast inner loop bits into jit compiled code versus having userland interpretters. Some of thd rete engines enjoy this. Just today there's graphql-jit.

    Everything you say is full of doubt & scorn & skepticism. I just cant imagine living im such a world where each system had to know fully well ahead of time each type of data it might want to interact with, might have to have that precompiled & baked in. Thatcs a shitty miserable world that looks like the hell JS plucked us out of, by being a flexible, dynamic language that could load in routines & change it's behavior over time. Screw that dark hell world.

    By using useParserCache we make sure to parse every unique operation only once. By using useValidationCache we make sure to validate every unique operation only once. By using useGraphQLJit we replace the default execute function with a just-in-time implementation.

    One thing to understand is that, if you are using Node.js graphql-js would typically be the underlying implementation of all libraries and ultimately everything would get converted to JS/TS objects typically an AST ultimately making all these as abstractions on top of the existing way to define schemas. Note that the implementation can differ a bit in other languages or even within Node.js if you are using other ways of implementation like graphql-jit

    Could you provide more context? the GraphQLJit plugin is a lightweight wrapper around graphql-jit. Could you share your previous datadog/graphql setup? Would love to dig in and find a proper solution!

    Customizable runtime. Use custom GraphQL implementation such as graphql-jit or rolling our own for performance and cutting-edge features.
