VMmark: The Industry’s First Virtualization Benchmark
VMmark is a free tool that hardware vendors, virtualization software vendors and other organizations use to measure the performance and scalability of applications running in virtualized environments. This virtualization benchmark software features a novel tile-based scheme for measuring application performance and provides a consistent methodology that captures both the overall scalability and individual application performance.
Traditional Benchmarking vs. VMmark Tile-Based Benchmarking
VMware developed VMmark as a standard methodology for comparing virtualized systems. The benchmark system in VMmark is comprised of a series of “sub-tests” that are derived from commonly used load-generation tools, as well as from benchmarks developed by the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC®). In parallel to VMmark, VMware is a member of the SPEC Virtualization subcommittee and is working with other SPEC members to create the next generation virtualization benchmark.
