I don't think there is one. Previously, the testers have typically just
picked a few combinations that they ran in their environment with both
the latest released version and the current release candidate, and
compared the results from the two versions to verify that the
performance hasn't gone down.

I'm going to run some of these tests on Solaris, but it would be useful
to see results from other platforms too. And two testers will probably
configure the JVM/db/test/OS differently, which will increase the
likelihood of discovering regressions that only manifest themselves in
certain configurations.
