Dgraph vs. CockroachDB

Has Dgraph ever been benchmarked against CockroachDB? I’m curious about whether Cockroach is able to catch up to Dgraph’s performance through its distributed Postgres model.

You could probably design a pretty close apples:apples ingestion benchmark if you kept to KV tables and KV inserts to dgraph. Blind writes in both situations.

For reading, it is situations where many joins would be needed in an RDBMS where dgraph would shine but a test would probably have to only do KV to make it even remotely apples:apples.

Both databases made a pure go rocksdb replacement, it may be interesting to bench those against each other, which could be entirely apples:apples and easy to design a good set of tests for.

Interesting idea though.
