Faban: Developing benchmarks and workloads using Faban 1.0

Faban 1.0 was released in November 2009, this lightning talk briefly looks at the features that Faban offers for developing benchmarks, infrastructure management services and load drivers and then will show what you need to do in order to write a driver from scratch.

Faban is a tool for developing and running benchmarks. Faban supports multi-tier server benchmarks (such as web/cache/database benchmarks) run across dozens of machines. It also supports developing and running a simple micro-benchmark targeting a single component (such as an ftp server.)
