Benchmarking is a way of uncovering what best possible performance is and how can be achieved. It helps understand bottlenecks and real limitations of your system. Optimizing benchmark is not an easy job. Did you ever ask yourself how do you know that benchmark numbers are correct? How do you validate your benchmark? What if you are measuring the wrong thing?
