Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

CloudSuite Graph Analytics 4.0

GraphX Algorithm: Page Rank metrics for this test profile configuration based on 37 public results since 4 February 2023 with the latest data as of 8 March 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.

Based on data, the selected test / test configuration (CloudSuite Graph Analytics 4.0 - GraphX Algorithm: Page Rank) has an average run-time of 7 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
