Subject: How to benchmark MySQL
I'd like to perform some performance benchmark of MySQL.
Could you please suggest me some useful resources (blog posts,
articles, tutorials) I can start with? Is there any tool / script I
can use for this purpose?
My aim is to create some human-understandable charts I can present to
