Subject Re: [jira] Updated: (DERBY-465) Embedded Derby-PointBase comparison

I can't tell from your report, are you testing each operation as a
separate transaction?  Any chance you can post your test programs?
If you can't do that, at least the DDL of the table and index
creates would help.

A major difference between derby and some other db's is that by
default it guarantees transaction consistency with each transaction
commit.  This means that it does a synchronous I/O with every
transaction commit, and thus update benchmarks which do one operation
per commit single user are not very interesting as they simply
measure the I/O throughput of the disk.

I don't see in the document what kind of disk you are using. Also for
Derby it is important to list what JVM you used to test.

I would be interested in helping you configure the test as appropriate
for Derby, and am interested at looking at the large DB results.
