A substantial amount of these signals - i.e. PVs - will be stored by the Archiving Service, a service that is currently under development at the Integrated Control System (ICS) Division. From a technical point of view, the Archiving Service is implemented using a software application called the Archiver Appliance. This application, originally developed at SLAC, records PVs as a function of time and stores these in its persistent layer. A study based on multiple simulation scenarios that model ESS (future) modus operandi has been conducted by ICS to understand how the Archiver Appliance performs and consumes resources (e.g. RAM) under disparate workloads. This paper presents: 1) The simulation scenarios; 2) The tools used to collect and interpret the results; 3) The storage study; 4) The retrieval study; 5) The resources saturation study; 6) Conclusions based on the interpretation of the results.
