Let's learn a weekly tip from Databend.

How to Benchmark with Hyperfine

Databend recommends using hyperfine to perform benchmarking via the ClickHouse/MySQL client. With a simple script, we can run benchmark easily:



export script="hyperfine -w $WARMUP -r $RUN"

function run() {
        script="hyperfine -w $WARMUP -r $RUN"
        while read SQL; do
                n="-n \"$SQL\" "
                s="echo \"$SQL\" | mysql -h127.0.0.1 -P$port -uroot -s"
                script="$script '$n' '$s'"
        done <<< $(cat $sql)

        script="$script  --export-markdown $result"
        echo $script | bash -x

run "$1" "$2" "$3"
