Best practice benchmarking: Evaluating MariaDB performance on-premise and in the cloud


In this presentation the author of the HammerDB benchmarking tool will look at the best practices for measuring database performance on-premise and in the cloud for comparing hardware resources, predicting capacity and identifying bottlenecks.
We will look at the trade-offs between testing production and generic workloads and consider advanced benchmarking concepts as increasing I/O, scaling up to thousands of sessions, testing clusters and step testing with variable workloads.
