What you'll learn

  • Explore Hyperledger Caliper


Caliper is a benchmark framework that allows users to measure the performance of a blockchain system under test. Caliper produces reports containing a number of performance indicators, such as TPS (transactions per second), transaction latency, and resource utilization. Victor Hu introduces the concept and architecture of the framework, explains how to integrate it with various blockchain systems, and demonstrates how to use Caliper to define and run a test flow.

This session is sponsored by Huawei.
