Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 ZFS OLTP Performance Improvements

Oracle Solaris ZFS has seen significant performance improvements in the Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 release compared to the previous release, Oracle Solaris 10 10/09.
  • A 28% reduction in response time comparing holding the load constant in an OLTP workload test comparing Solaris 10 9/10 release to Oracle Solaris 10 10/09.
  • A 19% increase in IOPS throughput holding the response time of 28 msec constant in an OLTP workload test comparing Solaris 10 9/10 release to Oracle Solaris 10 10/09.
  • OLTP workload throughput rates of at least 800 IOPS using Oracle's Sun SPARC Enterprise T5420 server and Oracle's StorageTek 2540 array were used in calculating the above improvement percentages.

SVM

Benchmark Description

IOPs test consisting of a mixture of random 8K block reads and writes accessing a significant portion of the available storage. As such the workload is not very "cache friendly" and, hence, illustrates the capability of the system to more fully utilize the processing capability of the back end storage.
