Benchmarking as a service?

Are there any services which allows to benchmark on cloud (i'm more interested in instance + database benchmarks) for read/write workloads and share the results.

Of-course, I can do it on my end but I see it time consuming. Would be great if any such services already exist.

Ex:

  1. What will be the RPS when running minimal load on f1-micro instance on GCP?
  2. What will be the TPS when running Postgres on f1-micro instance on GCP?

Thanks!

    Interesting idea, I thought about this before for optimising API latency. There is artillery.io, but I found it difficult generating representative workloads & having useful visualisations with their open source version.

    The main thing you want to benchmark is instance size? Or trying different databases?

      Both will be pretty useful.
      Consider checking how much nginx reverse proxy will perform on f1-micro instance on gcp for exampel

    I wonder if there is a need for this so that it can become a product?

      Yep. I was thinking the same but however anyone can use the idea for free :)
      Just wondering if something like this exists as its pretty useful for any who wants to know how the performance is.

    what kind of benchmark are you looking at?

      Just added examples. Please have a look.
