Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-1388) Implement performance tests using Vpork
Date Tue, 30 Jun 2009 06:17:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1388?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12725485#action_12725485

Michael Greene commented on HBASE-1388:

I don't think anyone advocated sticking to Thrift only, that's a bit of a strawman.  I wanted
Thrift to be kept ostensibly because it's the most-accessible denominator, but also because
it's the API that I would have to use.  I have to agree with almost everything Jeff said in
his previous comments.  Just because it's a pain point doesn't mean it's a bad test -- I don't
have the luxury of using the native Java client so it's testing what I (and other python/erlang/ruby/C#,...)
developers would experience.  The proposed C/C++ API and an Avro API have both been brought
up during this discussion but their non-existence tables that discussion for vpork.

I do think a more bigtable-esque test for some of the features that HBase, Hypertable, and
Cassandra share (to some extent) would be a good project.  A K/V test obviously does not exercise
HBase's potential.

> It would be useful to have a suite of performance tests so that HBase can be compared
to other similar projects. This could then be automated on the same hardware (perhaps even

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:
