TPCC-Like Workload for Sysbench 1.0

Sysbench-tpcc Supports PostgreSQL

In this post I’ll look at some of our recent work for benchmark enthusiasts: a TPCC-like workload for Sysbench (version 1.0 or later).
Despite being 25 years old, the TPC-C benchmark can still provide an interesting intensive workload for a database in my opinion. It runs multi-statement transactions and is write-heavy. We also decided to use Sysbench 1.0, […]

Gh-ost benchmark against pt-online-schema-change performance

gh-ost-benchmark

In this blog post, I will run a gh-ost benchmark against the performance of pt-online-schema-change.
