SPARC T4-2 Server Achieves World Record on Oracle E-Business Suite R12 Benchmark


(As of Friday, 28 September 2012)

Oracle set a world record result on the Oracle E-Business Suite Applications R12 Medium multiple-online module benchmark with Oracle's SPARC T4-2 server running the E-Business application and a SPARC T4-4 server running Oracle Database 11g Release 2. This is the first benchmark result achieving 4,100 concurrent online users, executing a mix of complex transactions.

The SPARC T4-2 server demonstrates performance leadership and world-record results on the Oracle E-Business Suite Applications R12 OLTP benchmark by publishing the first results using multiple concurrent online application modules with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 running Oracle Solaris 10.


The Oracle E-Business Suite R12 Standard Benchmark combines online transaction execution by simulated users with concurrent batch processing to model a typical scenario for a global enterprise. The online component exercises the common UI flows which are most frequently used by a majority of our customers. This benchmark utilized four concurrent flows of OLTP transactions, for Order to Cash, iProcurement, Customer Service and HR Self-Service and measured the response times. The selected flows model simultaneous business activities inclusive of managing customers, services, products and employees.


The results show that the two tier configuration of SPARC T4 servers running the Oracle E-Business Suite R12.1.2 application and Oracle Database 11g Release 2 is capable of supporting 4,100 online users, executing a mix of complex transactions from four Oracle E-Business modules (iProcurement, Order Management, Customer Support and HR Self-Service).

This benchmark demonstrates the scalability of the SPARC T4-2 server with mix of Web-based and Forms based transactions that are common in Oracle E-Business OLTP business processes.

The SPARC T4-2 server in the application tier and the SPARC T4-4 server in the database tier were utilized 65% and 30% respectively, providing significant headroom for additional Oracle E-Business Suite R12 processing modules, more online users, and future growth.
