times, I suggest you change the parameters at the beginning a start doing

+Kudos to Chris Bizer and Andreas Schultz for having written and shared the
+Berlin SPARQL Benchmark (BSBM) which although not perfect, as any benchmark,
+can brings a degree of objectivity and replicability in the world of RDF store
+performances. Kudos to Andy Seaborne too for TDB and Fuseki and the continuous
+effort towards improving them as well as their performances.
-Have fun!
