There are dozens of paramaters (MySQL configuration, Apache
configuration, opcode cache, MySQL cache, hardware, single-server vs
multi-server setup, Drupal version, Drupal modules installed, Drupal
settings, etc.) What we really need is a script or tool that allows
us to benchmark a particular setup. The script/tool should take an
input file with one or more navigation patterns or scenario's to
simulate/benchmark. We could use the same script to evaluate the
performance impact of certain code changes. Then, with the script/
tool we can benchmark and tune existing configurations and document
our knowledge in a document.
In addition to such tool, we need tools to profile your site while
being benchmarks. Some profiling can be done by using certain Drupal
modules/patches (eg. like the one I made to profile the cache
behavior). For other things, you might need other tools.
