Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-1388) Implement performance tests using Vpork

ryan rawson commented on HBASE-1388:

Guys, I disagree with the 'level playing field' thing here.  Our official access is via Java
thick client libraries.  The thrift gateway is provided so that languages that don't have
direct access can achieve it.  With RPC work done in 0.21, the thrift gateway will probably
be increasingly deprecated as we get C/C++ client libraries (and there, most scripting languages).

To use the native API, you need several things:
- hbase-site.xml, zoo.cfg in your classpath
- create a new HBaseConfiguration()
- create a new HTable(conf, "table_name")
- You're done!

Just because vpork is designed to test systems with thrift APIs doesn't mean that it should
only do that against all other systems.  Demanding that all systems implement a (slower?)
thrift API just for vpork really calls into question exactly how accurate vpork could ever

be a good starting point. It is written in Groovy and can use the Java client libs. This version
has been slightly refactored and also supports Cassandra:
