The Benchmark plugin is an easy way for an administrator to give a standard battery of performance tests to a Moodle installation. It recently came out of beta and is now available in the plugin respository.
Currently, Benchmark includes 10 metrics evaluated against acceptable and critical limits to produce a Benchmark score. They are measured in seconds (less is better). Here are the 10 metrics:
- Loading Moodle.
- Call a function many times (in a loop).
- Reading a test file.
- Writing a test file.
- Reading a full course.
- Writing a full course on the database.
- Executing a complex request.
- Executing a (polynomially) more complex request.
- Connecting with a guest account.
- Connecting with a fake login account.
And check out the GitHub repo here, where you can suggest and contribute new benchmarks.
