6/17/2002 - A new ECperf benchmark record was accomplished today by Sun Fire[tm] symmetric multi-processing (SMP) systems, achieving leading price/performance for the mainstream SMP systems. The SMP eight-way Sun Fire V880 server with 900 MHz UltraSPARC[tm] III processors in combination with Sun StorEdge[tm] arrays with 16 GB of memory, running the Solaris[tm] 8 Operating Environment (OE) demonstrates its ability to handle a complex and realistic application tier workload containing substantial business logic data. This test resulted in a record performance of 16668 Benchmark Business Operations (BBops)/min@Std and $26 /BBops running BEA WebLogic Server 7.0 with Oracle 9i and Java[tm] 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE[tm]). The ECperf benchmark results demonstrate that the Sun Fire V880 server, with active users accessing an Oracle 9i database server through BEA WebLogic server, is efficient in the handling of complex and realistic application-tier simulated workloads. The benchmark focuses on performance at the application-tier, modeling a Fortune 100 manufacturing business. Specifically designed to test the performance of J2EE-based multi-tier enterprise applications, the ECperf benchmark enables IT managers to model business functions such as ordering, and status checking, in order to enhance their effectiveness for web transactioning.
