Performance improvements

Faster and more reliable mentions

We added mentions in JIRA 5.0, which gave JIRA users an easy way to share an issue with other users via email. This release includes a significant performance improvement to this feature. You'll notice that user names are suggested much more quickly, when you start typing after an '@' character. The suggested results are also more accurate and reliable.

HTTP Requests Log Analyser

We recently developed a tool to analyse request logs that we are now making available to customers. The HTTP requests log analyser provides you with information, such as the maximum requests per minute, that can help you performance tune your JIRA instance.
