Sun T5440 Oracle BI EE Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 World Record
By Brad on Oct 13, 2009
Two Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 servers with four 1.6 GHz UltraSPARC T2 Plus processors delivered the best performance of 50K concurrent users on the Oracle BI EE 10.1.3.4 benchmark with Oracle 11g database running on free and open Solaris 10.
The two node Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 servers with Oracle BI EE running on Solaris 10 using 8 Solaris Containers shows 1.8x scaling over Sun's previous one node SPARC Enterprise T5440 server result with 4 Solaris Containers.
The two node SPARC Enterprise T5440 servers demonstrated the performance and scalability of the UltraSPARC T2 Plus processor demonstrating 50K users can be serviced with 0.2776 sec response time.
The Sun SPARC Enterprise T5220 server was used as an NFS server with 4 internal SSDs and the ZFS file system which showed significant I/O performance improvement over traditional disk for Business Intelligence Web Catalog activity.
Oracle Fusion Middleware provides a family of complete, integrated, hot pluggable and best-of-breed products known for enabling enterprise customers to create and run agile and intelligent business applications. Oracle BI EE performance demonstrates why so many customers rely on Oracle Fusion Middleware as their foundation for innovation.
IBM has not published any POWER6 processor based results on this important benchmark.

Benchmark DescriptionThe objective of this benchmark is to highlight how Oracle BI EE can support pervasive deployments in large enterprises, using minimal hardware, by simulating an organization that needs to support more than 25,000 active concurrent users, each operating in mixed mode: ad-hoc reporting, application development, and report viewing.
The user population was divided into a mix of administrative users and business users. A maximum of 28,000 concurrent users were actively interacting and working in the system during the steady-state period. The tests executed 580 transactions per second, with think times of 60 seconds per user, between requests. In the test scenario 95% of the workload consisted of business users viewing reports and navigating within dashboards. The remaining 5% of the concurrent users, categorized as administrative users, were doing application development.
The benchmark scenario used a typical business user sequence of dashboard navigation, report viewing, and drill down. For example, a Service Manager logs into the system and navigates to his own set of dashboards viz. .Service Manager.. The user then selects the .Service Effectiveness. dashboard, which shows him four distinct reports, .Service Request Trend., .First Time Fix Rate., .Activity Problem Areas., and .Cost Per completed Service Call . 2002 till 2005. . The user then proceeds to view the .Customer Satisfaction. dashboard, which also contains a set of 4 related reports. He then proceeds to drill-down on some of the reports to see the detail data. Then the user proceeds to more dashboards, for example .Customer Satisfaction. and .Service Request Overview.. After navigating through these dashboards, he logs out of the application
This benchmark did not use a synthetic database schema. The benchmark tests were run on a full production version of the Oracle Business Intelligence Applications with a fully populated underlying database schema. The business processes in the test scenario closely represents a true customer scenario.
