Sun Server X4-2 Performance Running SPECjbb2013 MultiJVM Benchmark
By Brian on Sep 18, 2013
Oracle's Sun Server X4-2 system, using Oracle Solaris and Oracle JDK, produced a SPECjbb2013 benchmark (MultiJVM metric) result. This benchmark was designed by the industry to showcase Java server performance.
The Sun Server X4-2 system is 24% faster than the fastest published Intel Xeon E5-2600 (Sandy Bridge) based two socket system's (Dell PowerEdge R720's) SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM max-jOPS.
The Sun Server X4-2 is 22% faster than the fastest published Intel Xeon E5-2600 (Sandy Bridge) based two socket system's (Dell PowerEdge R720's) SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM critical-jOPS.
The Sun Server X4-2 runs SPECjbb2013 (MultiJVM metric) at 70% of the published T5-2 SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM max-jOPS.
The Sun Server X4-2 runs SPECjbb2013 (MultiJVM metric) at 88% of the published T5-2 SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM critical-jOPS.
The combination of Oracle Solaris 11.1 and Oracle JDK 7 update 40 delivered a result of 52,664 SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM max-jOPS and 20,553 SPECjbb2013-MultiJVM critical-jOPS on the SPECjbb2013 benchmark.
From SPEC's press release, "SPECjbb2013 replaces SPECjbb2005. The new benchmark has been developed from the ground up to measure performance based on the latest Java application features. It is expected to be used widely by all those interested in Java server performance, including JVM vendors, hardware developers, Java application developers, researchers and members of the academic community."

The SPECjbb2013 benchmark has been developed from the ground up to measure performance based on the latest Java application features. It is relevant to all audiences who are interested in Java server performance, including JVM vendors, hardware developers, Java application developers, researchers and members of the academic community.
SPECjbb2013 replaces SPECjbb2005. New features include:
- A usage model based on a world-wide supermarket company with an IT infrastructure that handles a mix of point-of-sale requests, online purchases and data-mining operations.
- Both a pure throughput metric and a metric that measures critical throughput under service-level agreements (SLAs) specifying response times ranging from 10ms to 500ms.
- Support for multiple run configurations, enabling users to analyze and overcome bottlenecks at multiple layers of the system stack, including hardware, OS, JVM and application layers.
- Exercising new Java 7 features and other important performance elements, including the latest data formats (XML), communication using compression, and messaging with security.
- Support for virtualization and cloud environments.
