I've recently discovered the tool mysqlslap and have run some simple tests with it. I currently have three test environments (2 Win 7, 1 Linux Ubuntu) where I can run these tests. However, running a no-op test on one of the Win 7 machines takes approximately 2 seconds. Running a similar query from for example MySQL Workbench takes no time, just as it should. This must have something to do with the configuration of my machine or MySQL (5.5).
Running a more heavy query takes longer time on the already slow machine, which is at least a little bit logical.
Does anybody have a clue why this happens?
Any help appreciated!
