Benchmarking and Systems Performance

IBM #1 in Oracle Benchmark

leave a comment »

Oracle provides a suite of vendor benchmarks to measure the performance of Oracle applications called the Oracle E-Business Suite Standard Benchmark. This benchmark is a comparable standard workload which demonstrates the performance and scalability of Oracle applications and provides metrics for the comparison of performance on different system configurations.

IBM just published another #1 POWER7 benchmark result on one of Oracle’s own benchmarks. The IBM Power 710 6-core system now leads in the R12 Order-to-Cash Medium Model. IBM surpassed Cisco and HP in this benchmark by over 2 times the performance per core. (1)

So my question here is what happens when Oracle decides to have a hardware presence in this specific benchmark? Are we taking bets?

************************************************

(1)A 6-core IBM Power 710 (3.72 GHz) achieved the best medium two-tier Order-to-Cash batch result (213,523 lines per hour) running AIX 6.1 and IBM System Storage DS5100. A 12-core Cisco UCS B200 (3.33 GHz) achieved medium two-tier Order-to-Cash batch result (185,643 lines per hour). An 8-core HP DL380 (3.16 GHz) achieved medium two-tier Order-to-Cash batch result (108,108 lines per hour).
