Oracle Publishes First Result Using Online Component of Extra-Large Workload on Oracle E-Business Suite R12.1.2 Benchmark

BENCHMARK SUMMARY

(As of Monday, 20 September 2010)

Oracle's SPARC T3-2 and Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 servers running on the application and database tiers, respectively, are the first to achieve a result of 4,000 users on the online transaction processing (OLTP) component of the Oracle E-Business Human Resources Self-Service (HRSS) business flow.

This result demonstrates that SPARC T3-2 and Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 servers running Oracle Solaris, and Oracle's Sun Storage F5100 Flash array, which is instrumental in maintaining excellent average transaction response times, are well suited for large OLTP-application environments that require the highest levels of performance.

BENCHMARK DESCRIPTION

The Oracle E-Business Suite Standard Benchmark combines online transaction execution by simulated users with concurrent batch processing to model a "Day-in-the-Life" scenario for a global enterprise. The benchmark includes one online component and two batch components. The goal is to obtain reference response times and throughput for Oracle applications that are part of the benchmark suite. Results can be obtained in four configurations: small, medium, large, and extra large. Oracle E-Business Human Resources Self-Service (HRSS) business flow is a part of an extra-large workload that includes 20,000 online users and two batch jobs with 750K order-to-cash lines per hour and 250K payroll checks per hour.

BENCHMARK OUTCOME

  • Oracle has published the first Oracle E-Business R12.1.2 result using the extra-large benchmark configuration for online Human Resources Self-Service component. The SPARC T3-2 server running Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.2 on top of Oracle Solaris 10 in concert with a Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 server running Oracle Database 11g R2 supported 4,000 HRSS online users executing HRSS business flow.
  • The SPARC T3-2 server running in the application tier of the Oracle E-Business HRSS workload utilized only one-fourth of its compute resources, providing customers with plenty of headroom for growth. The result shows that the SPARC T3-2 server works well as a high-capacity, application server.
  • The Sun Storage F5100 Flash array enhances performance with a smaller footprint and lower power/cooling costs compared to traditional storage solutions.
  • The Sun SPARC Enterprise M5000 server and Sun Storage F5100 Flash array perform extremely well in database environments and deliver excellent average transaction response times.
