    to be benchmarked

    Hi,

    Could anyone pleas tell me what does "to be benchmarked to" mean?

    The customer churn prediction performance of the support vector machine model is benchmarked to logistic regression and random forecasts.

    Thanks.

    I'm sure to people involved in whatever industry that refers to, and people who don't mind gobbledygook, it's a fine sentence. For me, it's unintelligible.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I was going to say that "benchmark" was the one word I did understand in that sentence.
