As we continue to test our Fractal Tree Indexing with MongoDB, I’ve been updating my benchmark infrastructure so I can compare performance, correctness, and resource utilization. Sysbench has long been a standard for testing MySQL performance, so I created a version that is compatible with MongoDB. You can grab my current version of Sysbench for MongoDB here.
So what exactly is Sysbench? According to the Sysbench homepage, “Sysbench is a modular, cross-platform and multi-threaded benchmark tool for evaluating OS [Operating System] parameters that are important for a system running a database under intensive load.”
