Oracle+Sun: Where even more open source goes to die. (?)
This seems like a good time to update the test suite with a test case for this.
The everyone is complaining that the test suite is flawed since it does things like test compression performance test against far to optimal data.
So let's fix it, let's focus on where we want to go rather than how to get there. What kind of regression are interesting, how do we confirm they are statistically valid, and consistent?
How do we justify changes that might regress certain performance cases in favor of fixing suboptimal behavior such as the Lumpy Reclaim patches?
Let's figure out how to make the benchmarks valid and useful to the wider community. We can start with this one and work our way up.
