Databend Performance Data Collection and Visualization

Late last week, we proudly announced the https://perf.databend.rs/. This is a website for monitoring the performance of Databend's nightly releases.

All benchmarks are currently running on an Amazon EC2 server of size c5n.9xlarge, with 36 vCPUs and 96 GiB of memory, and Intel Xeon Platinum 8000 processors.

Databend Performance Data

The current benchmarks consists of:

  • A set of numerical computation SQLs for evaluating the performance of in-memory vectorization engines, based on Databend's numbers table function providing ten billions data.
  • A common set of SQLs for air traffic analysis, based on the publicly available OnTime dataset from the U.S. Department of Transportation, 60.8 GB of CSV, 202687654 records.

To view the source code, please visit GitHub - datafuselabs/databend-perf:

  • collector: stores daily performance data for each nightly release.
  • benchmarks: contains the benchmark suite defined by the yaml format.

Analyzing Nginx Logs with Databend and Vector

Systems are producing all kinds metrics and logs time by time, do you want to gather them and analyze the logs in real time?

Databend provides integration with Vector, easy to do it now!

You can use Databend to analyze Nginx access logs in just four steps:

  1. Deploy Databend, Create a Database and a Table for Nginx logs, Create a User for Vector Auth
  2. Install and Configure Nginx
  3. Install and Configure Vector, Run it
  4. Generate Nginx logs and Analyze them in Databend

To learn more about how to implement it, check out Analyzing Nginx Logs with Databend and Vector.

Tips

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:

#!/bin/bash

WARMUP=3
RUN=10

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

script=""
function run() {
        port=$1
        sql=$2
        result=$3
        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"

For details, please read databend.rs - How to Benchmark with Hyperfine
