With so many moving parts, how can you be sure that a tweak to your database is really beneficial or just a measurement fluke? And how can you be sure that your benchmark is measuring the right thing?

In this webinar you will learn a set of best practices to improve the quality of your benchmarks, including how to...

  • Evaluate changes to database systems, whether you are a code contributor or a user playing with knobs
  • Determine what to measure for the most accurate results
  • Make benchmarks that are strong, solid, and reliable

We will also cover how to judge whether benchmarks with incredible claims are to be trusted.
