This is a MariaDB MySQL database server benchmark making use of sysbench rather than the existing pts/mysqlslap test profile that uses MariaDB with mysqlslap/mariadb-slap as the benchmark driver.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark mariadb.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

MariaDB 11.5

Test: oltp_read_write - Threads: 64 metrics for this test profile configuration based on 47 public results since 25 March 2024 with the latest data as of 23 June 2024.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Based on data, the selected test / test configuration (MariaDB 11.5 - Test: oltp_read_write - Threads: 64) has an average run-time of 15 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
