ClickHouse is an open-source, high performance OLAP data management system. This test profile uses ClickHouse's standard benchmark recommendations per / with the 100 million rows web analytics dataset. The reported value is the query processing time using the geometric mean of all separate queries performed as an aggregate.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark clickhouse.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:


100M Rows Hits Dataset, Third Run metrics for this test profile configuration based on 66 public results since 11 January 2023 with the latest data as of 31 January 2023.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
