Oracle & HP Benchmarking

I am still in the process of configuring a new machine to run our "latest and greatest" database - Oracle 8i. I cannot seem to find any benchmarking for HP 9000 and Oracle. Any resources you can provide will be much appreciated.

Re: Oracle & HP Benchmarking

Hi,

Go to http://www.tpc.org. It is a renowned site for referencing database performance on different platforms and models.

We use the TPC performance benchmarks for our tender evaluation of new database servers.

Hope this helps. Regards.

Re: Oracle & HP Benchmarking

Hi,

But if you have already bought the server, you might want to try Mercury Interactive (http://www.mercuryinteractive.com) to benchmark your Oracle server.

Mercury Interactive provides both web server benchmarking as well as Oracle, SAP benchmarking.

Hope this helps. Regards.

Re: Oracle & HP Benchmarking

I've tried tpc, but it doesn't give much information on Oracle on HP's!

I have not pruchased the system yet, the higher ups want to see some performance stats on HP and NT platforms.

Re: Oracle & HP Benchmarking

Hi,

I have found on http://www.tpc.org:

1) Benchmark of Oracle 8i 8.1.5.1.1 on HP-UX 11 for V2500:
http://www.tpc.org/new_result/c-result1.idc?id=99030201

2) Benchmark of Oracle 8.1.7.1 on HP-UX 11i for Superdome:
http://www.tpc.org/new_result/c-result1.idc?id=101010301

If you cannot find the particular benchmark for your specific Oracle version on your specific HP hardware model, you can request HP to provide you with the tpc-c benchmark during your tender evaluation (under the condition of non-disclosure I believe).

Hope this helps. Regards.
