Benchmarking Preparation

  • Bert Scalzo


At this point you may believe yourself fully ready to start your database benchmarking efforts, armed with just the information provided thus far: the database benchmarking basics, an overview of the various industry-standard database benchmarks, and an elucidation of the IO subsystem and database benchmarking tools available. Therefore, some of you might feel like this chapter is merely filler or fluff. But I’m going to impress that this chapter is, in fact, the most critical one in the entire book, and should be read with the most attention. In fact, I will further state that failure to prepare as described in this chapter is arguably the single largest contributor to the next chapter: missteps and failure.
