Oracle Publishes New Result on Consumer E-Commerce Site Benchmark Using SPARC T3-1 Server

BENCHMARK SUMMARY

(As of Monday, 20 September 2010)

Oracle’s SPARC T3-1 Server with Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.3 and Oracle’s Sun SPARC Enterprise M4000 server with Oracle Database 11g R2, both running Oracle Solaris, demonstrated outstanding performance by supporting 19,000 concurrent users on a workload that mimics a popular online auction site and includes functions such as creating an auction, submitting bids, user login/logout, and account setup.

The SPARC T3-1 server allows customers to balance a large number of interactive user sessions by scaling the number of Oracle WebLogic Server instances almost linearly from one to four, while maintaining sub-second response time and leaving processing capacity for additional growth.

BENCHMARK DESCRIPTION

This benchmark was developed as a Oracle Fusion Middleware application that requires a Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE), application server and database. It was modeled after an online auction site and includes functions such as adding new product for auction, submitting bids, user login/logout and admin account setup. The Consumer E-Commerce Site benchmark captures the total number of users (bidders/sellers) accessing the database of sale items and performing other operations. The number of these operations is also captured and reported along with an average response time that should be below one second.

  • Oracle’s solution based on a SPARC T3-1 server at the application tier and a Sun SPARC Enterprise M4000 server at the database tier, supported 19,000 concurrent users with four Oracle WebLogic Server 10 instances.
  • The SPARC T3-1 server running Oracle WebLogic Server application software on Oracle Solaris 10 showed near-linear scaling of 3.7x on four instances of the benchmark.
  • The SPARC T3-1 server is capable of balancing a large number of interactive user sessions distributed across multiple hardware threads with sub-second response time while leaving processing capacity for additional growth.
  • The database server, a Sun SPARC Enterprise M4000, scaled well as the number of concurrent user sessions was increasing and was capable of supporting up to 19,000 online users.
  • This result confirms that the combination of Oracle Solaris 10, Oracle Java Hotspot Virtual Machine (VM), Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.3, and Oracle Database 11g Release 2, together with the SPARC T3-1 and Sun SPARC Enterprise M4000 servers, deliver outstanding performance and demonstrate the value of integrated engineering available only from Oracle.
