Benchmark compares Hadoop systems

Government IT managers looking for performance metrics on Hadoop-based systems can now use the Transaction Processing Performance Council’s TPCx-HS benchmark.

TPC is a non-profit corporation founded to define transaction processing and database benchmarks and to disseminate verifiable TPC performance data. Its TPCx-HS was developed to provide performance, price/performance, availability and energy consumption metrics of big data systems, the group said in its announcement

TPCx-HS provides objective measures of hardware, operating system, commercial Apache Hadoop File System API-compatible systems and MapReduce layers.  It can be used to asses a broad range of system topologies and the implementation of Hadoop clusters.

The benchmark models continuous system availability 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is available as a downloadable kit at the TPC’s website.

”TPCx-HS is the first vendor-neutral benchmark focused on big data systems  – which have become a critical part of the enterprise IT ecosystem,” said Raghunath Nambiar, chairman of the TPCx-HS committee.
