Throughput computing series... getting the most of your SPARC CMT server.

I was thinking about the development of a CMT throughput benchmark, but it occurred to me that there are many \*good\* examples of throughput already out with the benchmarks we publish... just look at the bmseer postings on the Recent T2 results and the long line of performance records on the T2000.

The biggest disconnect with CMT servers is a misunderstanding of throughput and multi-threaded applications. I made a posting last year which touched on some initial impressions, but I thought it would be a good idea to dig in further.

This entry is to kick off a series of postings that explore different aspects of throughput computing in a CMT environment. The rough outline is as follows:
    Overview
    • Definition of Throughput computing, multi-threading, and concurrency.
    Explore system parallelism
    • Unix commands and parallel options
    • Concurrent builds/compiles.
    • Configuring the system for parallelism
    Configuring applications for parallelism
    • Concurrency vs multi-threading
    • Single-Threaded jobs
    Database parallelism with Oracle
    • Parallel loader and datapump
    • Index build parallelism
    • Concurrent processing in Oracle
    • Configuring Oracle for CMT servers

Glenn, could you please start with the latest topic ("Configuring Oracle for CMT servers") ?

This blog discusses performance topics as running on Sun servers. The main focus is in database performance and architecture but other topics can and will creep in.
