Running a highly threaded network throughput oriented application suite such as Symantec Brightmail AntiSpam (SBAS) software on Sun SPARC Servers with Chip Multithreading (CMT) Technology (a.k.a. Sun CoolThreads servers) sounds like a no-brainer, since it is exactly what the UltraSPARC T1, T2, and T2 Plus processors with CoolThreads technology are designed for. For example the UltraSPARC T2 Plus processor supports two and four-socket server designs that can support up to 256 threads concurrently.

What the article "Tuning Symantec Brightmail AntiSpam on Sun Servers with CoolThreads Technology" really shows is how to unleash the full potential of CMT Technology running Symantec SBAS. Although running SBAS out-of-the-box on a Sun CoolThreads servers will provide significant performances advantages, the impact of tuning in highly threaded environments is always critical. Read this article and learn how to improve performance up to 2.33x, 3.7x or even 5.2x by following simple steps.
