I guess the only way to know how it will perform with your own
application is to benchmark it with queries coming from your own
application. You can create a test suite with a number of typical queries
and use your favourite scripting language to spawn a number of threads and
hammer the database. I find it interesting to measure the responsiveness
of the server while torturing it, simply by measuring the time it takes to
respond to a simple query and graphing it. Also you should not have N
threads issue the exact same queries, because then you will hit a too
small dataset. Introduce some randomness in the testing, for instance.
Benchmarking from another machine makes sure the test client's CPU usage
is not a part of the problem.
