Following up on last year's exercise, the performance shoot-out presentation at FOSS4G 2012 will test how long each Web mapping server takes to generate a map image, from a common set of spatial data, on a common platform. The data will be served by each Web mapping server through the WMS standard, which will serve exactly the same set of LAYERS. A JMeter load will be run on the testing box to measure various aspects of those layers.
Coordination/communication is primarily via the Benchmarking mailing list: http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/benchmarking
Weekly meetings will occur through IRC chat in the #foss4g channel on irc.freenode.net (you can use webchat to connect in browser)
