Introduction to Benchmarking in Julia


open source benchmarking juliaFor the number of years I’ve been programming using Julia, I’ve never really been concerned with performance. Which is to say, I’ve appreciated that other people are interested in performance and have proven that Julia can be as fast as any other performance language out there. But I’ve never been one to pour over the Performance Tips section of the Julia manual trying to squeeze every last bit of performance.

The Effect of Isolation Levels on Distributed SQL Performance Benchmarking


The general perception is that benchmarks published by vendors can never be trusted; however, well-run benchmarks absolutely have their place, even if performed by a vendor. Benchmarks are well-run when the input parameters to the benchmarked systems match the needs of the target workloads included in the benchmark. This cottage has a high isolation level.

Real Time Oracle Performance Monitoring for Benchmarks


Finally like all HammerDB features everything that is available on Linux is equally available on Windows as well so if running an Oracle client on Windows you can access exactly the same features to monitor your benchmark performance in real time. An essential part of database performance testing is viewing the statistics generated by the database during the test and in 2009 HammerDB introduced automatic AWR snapshot generation for Oracle for the TPC-C test.

Evaluating the Evaluation: A Benchmarking Checklist

Brendan Gregg

These have inspired me to summarize another performance activity: evaluating benchmark accuracy. Accurate benchmarking rewards engineering investment that actually improves performance, but, unfortunately, inaccurate benchmarking is more common. I have spent much of my career refuting bad benchmarks, and have developed such a knack for it that prior employers would not publish benchmarks unless they were approved by me. These kinds of benchmarks are misleading.

The top 5 reasons to run your own database benchmarks


Some opinions claim that “Benchmarks are meaningless”, “benchmarks are irrelevant” or “benchmarks are nothing like your real applications” However for others “Benchmarks matter,” as they “account for the processing architecture and speed, memory, storage subsystems and the database engine.” That is why we run a workload designed exactly for this purpose as it gives us a “benchmark” 2.

Memory Bandwidth Requirements of the HPL benchmark

John McCalpin

The High Performance LINPACK (HPL) benchmark is well known for delivering a high fraction of peak floating-point performance. The (historically) excellent scaling of performance as the number of processors is increased and as the frequency is increased suggests that memory bandwidth has not been a performance limiter. But this does not mean that memory bandwidth will *never* be a performance limiter.
