A STAC Test Harness™ is software that enables the execution of STAC Benchmarks. A STAC Pack™ is software that enables a given STAC Test Harness to conduct tests of a specific product (depending on the benchmark, this might be a particular database, a particular processor, etc.). Each STAC Test Harness embodies the industry’s best practices in four areas: workload generation, scenario configuration, measurement, and analysis & reporting.
The code that makes up STAC Test Harnesses and STAC Packs is contributed by STAC and members of the STAC Benchmark Council. Other members of the Council can use this software to run STAC Benchmarks in the privacy of their own labs. This provides an insightful, standardized picture of performance that is capable of exact comparison with published test results. These tools can also be used to perform customized tests rather than the standard benchmarks (e.g., testing boundary conditions, exceptions, sensitivity, etc.).
