HammerDB is the leading open source database benchmarking software for commercial and open source databases. Hosted by the industry-standard benchmarking body the TPC, HammerDB supports workloads derived from the transactional TPC-C and Analytic TPC-H benchmark specifications.
In this session the lead developer of HammerDB will explain what it does, how it works and how it has been designed to avoid the pitfalls so common to other database benchmarking software to deliver high performance and scalability.
Using PostgreSQL and MySQL we will walk through practical transactional benchmarking scenarios looking at the operating system and database configuration tuning and analysis giving insights into benchmarking skills that can be deployed in your own environment.
Finally, we will look at where HammerDB is going with future development and features planned for 2021 and beyond and how you can get involved in the HammerDB community to help make comparing and contrasting database performance open to all.
