Benchmark Used 25,000 Concurrent Users, Average Response Time of 0.36 Seconds October 18, 2012,
Volume 176, Issue 3
Oracle reports that one of its SPARC T4-4 servers with internal Solid State Drive (SSD) using the ZFS file system running Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g achieved 25,000 concurrent users with an average response time of 0.36 seconds with Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g 126.96.36.199.0 server cache set to ON. This level of performance clearly shows that the underlying hardware, SPARC T4 server, and the Oracle BI EE 11g (188.8.131.52.0 64-bit) platform deployed in a vertical scale-out fashion scale within a single system supporting 25,000 concurrent users while executing 415 transactions/sec. Oracle Internet Directory configured on the SPARC T4 server provided authentication for the 25,000 Oracle BI EE users with sub-second response time. The multi-threaded 64-bit Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g and SPARC T4-4 server proved to be a successful combination by providing sub-second response times for the end user transactions, consuming only half of the available CPU resources at 25,000 concurrent users, leaving plenty of head room for increased load.
