Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

RedShift Demo 3.0 metrics for this test profile configuration based on 332 public results since 12 September 2020 with the latest data as of 6 September 2021.

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 (RedShift Demo 3.0) has an average run-time of 21 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.
