Summary: Jignesh Shah of VMware, veteran PostgreSQL benchmarker, will cover running the DVDstore benchmark with PostgreSQL.
Hosted by Mozilla.com, at their San Francisco offices in the Hills Bros. Coffee Building. Food sponsored by PostgreSQL Experts Inc.
The DVDStore benchmark is an open source, free benchmark designed by Dell which is considerably more sophisticated than pgBench, while being more portable than DBT2. Given PostgreSQL's need to do more systematic performance testing to drive development, Jignesh has ported DVDstore to PostgreSQL and will be talking about how to run it and what it shows, as well as the importance of benchmarking in general.
