Millions of Queries per Second: PostgreSQL and MySQL's Peaceful Battle at Today's Demanding Workloads [59469]
Percona, January 6th, 2017

Anastasia Raspopina and Sveta Smirnova blogs, "This blog compares how PostgreSQL and MySQL handle millions of queries per second.

Anastasia: Can open source databases cope with millions of queries per second? Many open source advocates would answer 'yes.' However, assertions aren't enough for well-grounded proof. That's why in this blog post, we share the benchmark testing results from Alexander Korotkov (CEO of Development, Postgres Professional) and Sveta Smirnova (Principal Technical Services Engineer, Percona). The comparative research of PostgreSQL 9.6 and MySQL 5.7 performance will be especially valuable for environments with multiple databases.

The idea behind this research is to provide an honest comparison for the two popular RDBMSs. Sveta and Aleksander wanted to test the most recent versions of both MySQL and PostgreSQL with the same tool, under the same challenging workloads and using the same configuration parameters (where possible). However, because both PostgreSQL and MySQL ecosystems evolved independently, with standard testing tools (pgbench and SysBench) used for each database, it wasn't an easy journey..."

Video: System Methodology - Holistic Performance Analysis on Modern Systems [55639]
insideHPC, August 26th, 2016

In this video from ACM Applicative 2016, Brendan Gregg from Netflix presents: System Methodology - Holistic Performance Analysis on Modern Systems.

"Traditional systems performance engineering makes do with vendor-supplied metrics, often involving interpretation and inference, and with numerous blind spots. Much in the field of systems performance is still living in the past: documentation, procedures, and analysis GUIs built upon the same old metrics. For modern systems, we can choose the metrics, and can choose ones we need to support new holistic performance analysis methodologies..."

SPECjbb2015: SPARC S7-2 Multi-JVM and Distributed Results [55407]
BestPerf Blog

Oracle's SPARC S7-2 server, using Oracle Solaris and Oracle JDK, produced two-chip SPECjbb2015-Distributed and SPECjbb2015-MultiJVM benchmark results. This benchmark was designed by the industry to showcase Java performance in the Enterprise. Performance is expressed in terms of two metrics, max-jOPS which is the maximum throughput number and critical-jOPS which is critical throughput under service level agreements (SLAs).

SPECjEnterprise2010: SPARC S7-2 Secure and Unsecure Results [55413]
BestPerf

Brian blogs, "Oracle's SPARC S7-2 servers produced a SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark result of 14,400.78 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS using one SPARC S7-2 server for the application tier and one SPARC S7-2 server for the database server.

The SPARC S7-2 servers also obtained a result of 14,121.47 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS using encrypted data. This secured result used Oracle Advanced Security Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) for the application database tablespaces with the AES-128 cipher. The network connection between the application server and the database server was also secured using Oracle's Network Data Encryption with the JDBC driver and RC4-128 cipher..."

Brian blogs, "Two Oracle Server X6-2 systems, using the Intel Xeon E5-2699 v4 processor, produced a world record for x86 systems SPECjEnterprise2010 benchmark result of 27,803.39 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS. One Oracle Server X6-2 system ran the application tier and the second Oracle Server X6-2 system ran the database tier.

  • The Oracle Server X6-2 system demonstrated 44% better performance when compared to the IBM X3650 M5 server result of 19,282.14 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS.

  • The Oracle Server X6-2 system demonstrated 29% better performance when compared to the previous generation Oracle Server X5-2 system result of 21,504.30 SPECjEnterprise2010 EjOPS.

  • This result used Oracle WebLogic Server 12c, Java HotSpot 64-Bit Server 1.8.0_91, Oracle Database 12c, and Oracle Linux..."
