In many Performance evaluation studies, you will find comparison made in terms of peak throughput or corresponding response time. Yet these metrics are not the ones which well describe how technology would behave in real production systems. In this brief presentation, we will look into why such metrics can be misleading as well as provide framework and principles about performance evaluation which focuses on being able to provide good service in real world production environments. We will use MySQL as example technology, though most of this presentation has broad applicability to data processing technologies
