MySQL Conference and Expo Talk on Benchmarking

 | February 2, 2012 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView


I’ll be speaking on April 11th at 4:30 pm in Room 4 in at the Percona Conference and Expo Talk. The topic will be “Creating a Benchmark Infrastructure That Just Works.

Throughout my career I’ve been involved with maintaining the performance of database applications and therefore created many benchmark frameworks. At Tokutek, an important part of my role is measuring the performance of our storage engine over time and versus competing solutions. There is nothing proprietary about what I’ve created, it can be used anywhere.

My presentation will cover how I created the benchmark infrastructure at Tokutek:

  • Hardware and software considerations (including physical vs. virtual)
  • Selecting benchmarks
  • Capturing detailed information during the benchmark
  • Automation
  • Storing results
  • Visualization
  • Trend analysis
  • Continuous integration (monitoring the performance of future versions)
  • Self-service (let people get the information they want)

Track: Tools
Experience level: Intermediate

Tokutek is also a sponsor of the show and will have an expo booth. So, I hope to see you at my talk and/or at our booth.
