A TDSQL instance is composed of shards. The specification and number of shards determine the processing capability of the instance. In theory:
Therefore, the higher the shard specification and quantity, the stronger the processing capability of the instance. The performance of a shard is mainly subject to CPU/memory and measured by QPS. General performance metrics are detailed in the shard performance description section.
Specification of a TDSQL shard is determined by three factors: performance, capacity, and other requirements.
Performance: by predicting the performance demand and possible growth for at least six months, you can define the total CPU/memory size required of your TDSQL instance.
Capacity: by predicting the disk capacity and possible growth for at least one year, you can define the total disk size required of your TDSQL instance.
Other requirements: you are recommended to store at least 50 million rows of data in one shard and take into account business needs such as broadcast and non-sharded tables and in-node joins.
You are recommended to ensure high specification for a single shard while keeping the shard quantity relatively small.
Based on the above, it is estimated that you may have the following business requirements. Recommended strategies are as follows:
The database benchmark performance test is to modify the descriptions of sysbench 0.5: the OTLP script that comes with sysbench was modified. Specifically, the read/write ratio was changed to 1:1 and controlled by the testing command parameters
oltp_index_updates. In this document, all test cases involve four SELECT operations and one UPDATE operation with the read/write ratio at 4:1.

TPS here is for single transaction other than distributed transaction.
As required by operational strategies, current TDSQL instances (or part of them) adopt the policy of overuse of idle resources, so CPU utilization may exceed 100% on your monitoring panel.
