Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-1388) Implement performance tests using Vpork
Date Mon, 29 Jun 2009 22:38:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1388?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12725378#action_12725378

Jeff Hodges commented on HBASE-1388:

I can test the performance characteristics of my car's engine just as well driving in reverse.
Doesn't mean it's a bad test. 

Random reads and writes is what I was talking about and what people seemed to be saying were
a bad test. Maybe we have different understandings of what was meant. I'm really not harshing
on HBase. I like HBase!

I mean, unless you're saying that testing random reads and writes is a bad test?

Here's my context: I've evaluating a bunch of datastores that could have a number of uses,
from the usual Hadoop-style streaming to random reads, etc. HBase does somethings well, and
other things not so well, just like the rest right? vpork tests just one particular use case
and is not a complete benchmarking of HBase. We can all agree to this right?

(And I'm not advocating staying on Thrift solely, btw. Like I said, I just was able to get
that to work.)

> 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:
