sysbench is a benchmark tool that is quite ubiquitous in the MySQL community. It is used by both beginners and huge corporations alike as a quick way to evaluate general system performance, a universal measuring tool to compare configuration or code changes, server releases or server flavors, or as a part of QA process. This session will present new features provided by recent releases and explain how they can be used to create complex benchmark scenarios and collect performance metrics with a simple Lua API.
We will also run a live demo of some of the new sysbench features.
