2729590 - Thread contention on cart objects involving promotions


If a cart contains many items and promotions, performance may degrade when adding new items. For example, a grocery cart with more than 100 items and more than 25 promotions may exhibit slow performance when adding a new item. To improve performance in these situations, you can enable caching of promotion results.

The behavior can be observed in the thread dumps as a thread contention on cart objects, where one thread will hold the lock on a Cart object and other threads will be waiting to acquire it in order to do different kinds of operations, for example setting the delivery mode.
