SPARC T4-4 Produces World Record Oracle OLAP Capacity

Oracle's SPARC T4-4 server delivered world record capacity on the Oracle OLAP Perf workload.

  • The SPARC T4-4 server was able to operate on a cube with a 3 billion row fact table of sales data containing 4 dimensions which represents as many as 70 quintillion aggregate rows (70 followed by 18 zeros).

  • The SPARC T4-4 server supported 3,500 cube-queries/minute against the Oracle OLAP cube with an average response time of 1.5 seconds and the median response time of 0.15 seconds.

Benchmark Description

OLAP Perf is a workload designed to demonstrate and stress the Oracle OLAP product's core functionalities of fast query, fast update, and rich calculations on a dimensional model to support Enhanced Data Warehousing. The workload uses a set of realistic business intelligence (BI) queries that run against an OLAP cube.

Key Points and Best Practices

  • The SPARC T4-4 server is estimated to support 2,400 interactive users with this fast response time assuming only 5 seconds between query requests.
