RethinkDB 2.1.5 performance & scalability
This report describes a recent effort that the RethinkDB team took to measure our database product, RethinkDB, under different workloads and in different clustering configurations. We seek to provide a general overview of RethinkDB’s performance metrics for a variety of workloads and potential use cases. In this report some of the questions we’ll address include:
- What sort of performance can I expect from a RethinkDB cluster?
- How well does RethinkDB scale?
- Can I trade consistency for performance?
We’ll answer these questions by using different workloads from the YCSB benchmark. You can learn more about YCSB here, and review the source code here. Expanding beyond the YCSB workloads we selected, we created an additional test which investigates scalability for analytic workloads.
