In this talk at the 2013 JVM Language Summit, Oracle's Aleksey Shipilev talks benchmarking, that necessary evil. Shipilev addresses the basic questions, like what is a benchmark?

Shipilev explains how software performance engineering is more of a natural science, with experiments, whereas vanilla software engineering is more of a formal science.
