The TPC-C performance test yielded 112,286.46 transactions per minute (tpmC) at a cost of US $13.44 per tpmC.
Compaq Computer Corp claims that Sun Microsystems Inc's recent TPC-C performance record of 115,395 tpmC on a single 64-way StarFire server running a single copy of Oracle indicates that the company can't handle the kind of distributed record locking it achieves with Tru64 Unix and TruCluster system software.
According to Compaq spokespersons one of the benchmarks, achieved on a "shared-nothing" cluster of 12 ProLiant 8500 servers running Windows 2000 Datacenter Server, sets a new TPC-C record -- for any hardware, operating system or database -- of 227,079.15 transactions per minute at $19.12 per tpmC. This represents the first time an industry-standard system has out-performed all other TPC-C benchmarks.
Shipping in August, StarFire comes in above Compaq's DEC AlphaServer 8400 (eight 12-way nodes) at 102,541 tpmC with eight database instances; Sequent's 64-way NUMA-Q 2000 at 93,900 tpmC with 16 databases; and its chief rival, Hewlett-Packard's 32-way V2500 at 92,832.
The ES5085R achieved 40,670.05 transactions per minute (tpmC) in the test, which was conducted using the Transaction Processing Council's "C" methodology, an industry standard measure of OLTP performance.
Fujitsu Ltd has announced that it has a tpmC performance result of 25,440.90tmpC for a 4 processor Intel-based GRANPOWER 5000 Model 680 teamserver running Windows NT, which is believed by the company to be the best result achieved globally.
It offers memory bandwidth of 5.2Gb/sec with two 256k buses, which Compaq claims is more than twice that of the Sun Enterprise 250 and offers 11,616 tpmC marks at $50.58 per tpmC.
