19 Mar 2012 How Memory Allocation Affects Performance in Multithreaded Programs [25732]
Sniffing Out Lock Contention with Several Tools

If your new server has an alarmingly lower transaction rate than you had anticipated, Rickey C. Weisner suggests that you look first at lock contention in the memory allocator. His article demonstrates the use of prstat to determine whether there is lock contention. Demonstrated as well is the use of Professor Emery Berger's MT-hot allocator named Hoard, and of the mtmalloc (both old and new), and the libumem memory allocators. The question of which is best is answered by Weisner's use of a test harness, which appears to give the edge to the new mtmalloc.

16 Jan 2012 Netra SPARC T4-2 SPECjvm2008 World Record Performance [25258]
The Netra SPARC T4-2 server demonstrates 41% better performance than the SPARC T3-2 server

Oracle's Netra SPARC T4-2 Server equipped with two SPARC T4 processors running at 2.85 GHz set a world record result of 454.52 SPECjvm2008 Peak ops/m on the SPECjvm2008 benchmark. This result surpassed the previous record, which was run on a similar product, Oracle's SPARC T4-2 server. This level of performance is 41% better than the SPARC T3-2 server and similar in performance to Oracle's SPARC T4-2 server. The Netra SPARC T4-2 server with hardware cryptography acceleration greatly increases performance with subtests using AES and RSA encryption ciphers. There are no SPECjvm2008 results published by IBM on POWER7 based systems.

14 Nov 2011 New World Record for SPARC T4-2 on SPECjvm2008 Result with Oracle Solaris 11 [24934]
Beats SPARC T3-2 Record by 41%

The SPARC T4-2 Server equipped with two SPARC T4 processors running at 2.85 GigaHertz (GHz) and using Oracle Solaris 11 and Oracle JDK 7 Update 2 set a world record of 454.25 SPECjvm2008 Peak ops/m on the SPECjvm2008 benchmark, a benchmark suite for measuring the performance of a Java Runtime Environment (JRE). This level of performance is 41% better than the mark set by the SPARC T3-2 Server. The hardware cryptography acceleration built into the SPARC T4-2 was found to greatly increase performance on subtests using AES and RSA encryption ciphers.

11 May 2011 SPARC T-3, Enterprise M-Series Servers Demonstrate Outstanding Performance [24172]
Several Benchmark Results Showcase SPARC Performance Superiority Across Oracle’s Software Portfolio

Several recent benchmark results demonstrate the viability of Oracle's integrated approach to hardware and software design, making it clear that Oracle solutions run optimally on Sun Oracle hardware. Oracle tested its SPARC T-Series and SPARC Enterprise M-Series servers in performance measures against IBM notably and in one instance delivered results nearly 2.5 times the IBM entry. Among the benchmarks involved were TPC-H@3000GB; JD Edwards EnterpriseOne "Day-in-the-Life" benchmark; and Oracle Communications ASAP. Oracle announced results as well for benchmarking tests using the Avitek medical Records application and on cryptographic performance of the SPARC T3 processor running the IPsec AES-256-CCM cipher. In every instance, Oracle's current line of servers outperformed either the competition or earlier versions of hardware.

26 Apr 2011 BMC Software Leverages SPARC Servers for Virtualization, Energy Efficiency [24139]
Savings Range from $20-35K per Sever over Three Years

BMC Software has implemented Oracle’s SPARC Enterprise T-series servers with Oracle Solaris in its datacenters and research and development (R&D) department resulting in reduced organization-wide energy consumption and improved support for corporate innovation. Oracle's high-density, low power consumption SPARC T-Series servers help reduce data center costs with massive scalability, on-chip security, and built-in, no-cost virtualization enabling BMC to provide customers using BMC Software’s Business Service Management with a comprehensive approach and unified platform that that helps IT organizations cut costs, reduce risk and drive business profit.

In a three-year period, Oracle’s Sun SPARC Enterprise T5240 server has saved BMC on average between $20,000 and $35,000 in power costs per server. Oracle’s SPARC T3-2 server is expected to nearly double those savings, consuming one-eighth the power and emitting one-eighth the CO2 of existing UltraSPARC IIIi-based servers.
