TPM for a 32 way superdome A5201A w/ 750MHz PA8700 processors

We just received a 32 way superdome loaded up with 128GB memory and we are starting to play around with it. I was wondering if anyone had the transactions per minute (TPM) specs on something like this.

A5201A HP 9000 Superdome Server
32 x 750MHz PA-RISC 8700 CPUs

Thanks

Jesse,

Well here's a TPC report for one of these with 2x the CPU/memory you have:

Sadly enough, this could probably be eclipsed by a fully loaded one of these now:

The cost of running one of these 5 year old systems is not really going to stand up compared to what modern kit can do...but I'm sure you know plenty of people are still running these systems and aren't yet in a position to migrate off them - break it up and sell as spares...

Hi Duncan, thanks for the info, this is what I was looking for.. Yea there is probably not going to be a lot of interest for these things anymore. That's our plan to part them out, I really don't think anyone wants to drop the cash to get one of these things going... not to mention the insane power consumption it take to light these things up.

Also, thanks for the link Robert-Jan but the TPM's on that HP doc only disclose for the 64 x 875MHz (541,674 tpm)
