I tested this plugin with the real world example and it showed me very misleading information about MySQL performance.
I had a large database of 11k+ images, 5k+ posts imported and then manipulated to two different local WP environments. One that was measured by this plugin as much slower due was performing significantly faster, and one that should be faster was in the real world much slower.
I made sure it was the same database and all steps were exactly the same, then measured time with the stopwatch.
When we’re talking about PHP performance test, it DOES reflect PHP performance correctly, or better say more precisely.
UPDATE: Despite that in occasional cases this plugin gives unreliable readings, it’s not that often and do recommed to use it as basic test of the server performance.
