Default performance issue with the xsl given here

we are working on a SOA appliance. we get a terrible performance impact if we use the following xsl in our application which will be running in the appliance.

Not considering the appliance specific variables used in this xsl.. is there any fine tuning that we can make in the xsl so that the performance can be increased.

also is there any tool to compute complexity of a xsl. how will i find out if there is any danger of memory leakage in this xsl?

I can't see any obvious performance gotchas in this code, it's not very pretty code and there are lots of calls to extension functions that could be doing unknown things, but the navigation logic looks pretty straightforward. It might be a problem that's specific to your particular XSLT processor, or something about the way you are using it. Is there a large source document? How does the performance vary with the size of the source document - do some experiments. Try removing parts of the stylesheet code, piece by piece, to see whether this identifies the part that's causing the problems.

this xsl creates a log message in soap/xml format and this xml message is sent to another webservice which will do the actual logging in linux box. the verbosity data tag shown below carries the request and response xmls of a particular transaction. there are four such xmls (2 req 2 resp) embedded in the log message. will this be a reason? each xml is hardly 2000 bytes long. also the documents we open up in this xsl is pretty small. so did this explanation gave any input to you to answer why there may be a performance fall back?

you can see certain parts in the code are repeated. i can avaoid this by using another template which could create the log message for me. is there any problem if i pass lot of parameters to a template? (say a 2000 byte parameter)

this is the area where in we are embedding requests/response of a

>so did this explanation gave any input to you to answer why there may be a performance fall back?

It tends to confirm my suspicion that the cost is not in the XSLT code, but in the external services it is calling upon.

Well the transformation uses stuff like dp:variable('var://context/cih/RequestHeader'), what does that do?

You say for example

>this xml message is sent to another webservice

But I'm sorry, I can only make guesses. I know nothing about the products you are using or the environment you are running in. One can't debug performance issues just by staring at them.

well I am truely concerned about the performance set back that this xsl may bring. the external web service is invoked asynchronously however. Fine Kay. Thanks for the reply.

It doesn't matter if it's asynchronous or not, if it's returning a value to the transformation process then it must wait until it's received before it can continue.

thats true. but it is just a fire and forget process. the result of the transformation is sent to the web service and thats it. the transaction comes to end.
