HP Claims Top Scores in TPC-C Benchmarks
Hewlett Packard announced that its ProLiant ML350 G3 has chalked a win in the benchmarking sweepstakes, nailing down top ratings in the popular Transaction Processing Performance Counsel (TPC-C) benchmarks. Hewlett Packard has announced that its ProLiant ML350 has taken top scores in the TPC-C benchmarks, both in overall performance and in price-performance ratios.
The TPC-C is a set of performance tests distinguished by its utilization of production applications to measure the performance of a given platform, as opposed to standalone "benchmark software." Specifically, the organization says the TPC-C simulates an environment where terminal operators execute transactions against a database running in an order entry environment, where orders, payments, deliveries, and inventory are monitored.
The base result of a TPC-C benchmark is the "tpmC" number, which reflects "New Order" transactions per minute on a system running at a normal load. A tpmC number of 710, for instance, reflects a system processing 710 "new order transaction" per minute in addition to its other computational/transactional responsibilities.
According to HP, a ProLiant ML350 G3 running Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft SQL Server 2000, configured with a 2.8 GHz Intel Xeon processor won the top position in performance, delivering TPC benchmark results of 39,006.54 tpmC for double processor servers, and a ML350 G3 running with one 2.8 GHz Xeon recorded a result of 19,526.27 tpmC for single processor servers.
The TPC-C benchmark is also used to calculate the price to performance ratio of a tested platform. HP says The ML350 was measured with a top score of $2.47/tpmC for one processor servers and $4.72/tpmC for two processor servers.
