Automate Database Benchmarking with Xbench

  • Orlando Moreno, Xpand Senior Performance Engineer, MariaDB

Performance benchmarking across various database products is a very time-consuming task whose complexity exponentially grows as the number of parameters increases. To address this, we created Xbench: a multi-DBMS, multi-cloud command-line tool which automates the complete end-to-end workflow of benchmarking a database product in the cloud. We use this tool to help us understand which workloads are better served by MariaDB products and keep us informed about the competitive landscape. This session introduces Xbench and its capabilities, the supported benchmarks, databases and clouds, future plans for the tool, and a quick demo.
