Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (Apache HBase 2.5.0 - Rows: 10000 - Test: Random Write - Clients: 1) has an average run-time of 2 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.
