 To measure (a rival's product) according to specified standards in
order to compare it with and improve one's own product.

That's a pretty good definition. Polygraph is a web cache benchmarking
suite (set of tools). It allows one to grade a web caches performance
in a way that makes that performance comparable to other web caches that
have been tested with the same workload. wrote:
