Thursday, 03. April 2014, 11:00 - 12:00 GMT (12:00 - 13:00 CET; 15:00 - 16:00 GST)

Title: What is Performance - Benchmarks beyond SPECint

Abstract:
Evaluating system performance is an art.  It goes well beyond the single number result you might get from a popular benchmark like SPECint. 
Because different applications stress different parts of a system, there are numerous other benchmarks.  Only if you know the most popular ones, what they do and how they correlate to real world workloads will you be able to use them successfully in discussions with your customer.
This webinar will present an overview of common benchmarks and shed some light on benchmarketing tricks used by hardware vendors.

Target audience: Tech Presales

Speaker: Stefan Hinker
