DL580G3 L3 cache and database performance

Hello,

We are looking for dl580 as a new hardware for our sqlserver2000 application (mix OLTP+Queries). Options are:
3.60 w 1MB L2
3.33 w 1MB L2 + 8MB L3 (but +3K$)

How L3 cache will affect performance. Is it worth of getting less Ghz's but with more L3?

Thanks in advance,
Ed

Hi Edgars,

According to some benchmark studies, heavy databse applications always get benefited by any cache you provide them.go through teh following link for more info
