To discuss these benchmark results, Joyent is planning a meet-up at the Joyent office in San Francisco on the evening of July 9th. During this meet-up, we'll do some active benchmarking using YCSB and one or two of the target benchmarks (MongoDB, etc.). Doing this will confirm that the benchmark tests what it says it tests, and will help in understanding the results. In active benchmarking, performance is analyzed while the benchmark is running. This will use tools available on SmartOS (DTrace, iostat, mpstat, etc.). We'll also examine some issues we have run into, and how we have solved those issues.
