The system also enables real-time price and tax separation, international settlement as well as free trade zone business.
4. Cross-over that improves system processing performance
The new generation core system adopts mechanisms such as transaction accounting separation, lending separation, hot account processing and database sharding. Through cluster deployment, transaction processing performance is greatly improved. The concurrent processing capacity of the system has been increased from 385 transactions per second in legacy core to 10,000 transactions per second, end-of-day batch processing time has been shortened from 5 hours to 1.5 hours and batch collection speed for a single account has been increased from 20,000 transactions per hour to more than 500,000 transactions per hour, increasing efficiency by more than 25 times and completely solving the bottleneck problems faced by the cooperative.
