Build Status

Benchmarking is incredibly useful, yet endlessly painful. This benchmark suite is the result of a group of Phd/post-docs/professors getting together and combining their workloads/frameworks/experiences/efforts. We hope this will save other people's time, and will provide an extensible platform, that can be grown in an open-source fashion.

OLTPBenchmark is a multi-threaded load generator. The framework is designed to be able to produce variable rate, variable mixture load against any JDBC-enabled relational database. The framework also provides data collection features, e.g., per-transaction-type latency and throughput logs.

Together with the framework we provide the following OLTP/Web benchmarks:

This framework is design to allow easy extension, we provide stub code that a contributor can use to include a new benchmark, leveraging all the system features (logging, controlled speed, controlled mixture, etc.)
