.. blueprint document is now available on wikis.sun.com. Here is the direct link to the blueprint:
Consolidating Oracle Siebel CRM 8 on a Single Sun SPARC Enterprise Server.
Siebel 8.0 Platform Sizing and Performance Program (PSPP) benchmark workload was used in running all the performance tests using Solaris Containers and Logical Domains (LDoms) on a single Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 server running Solaris 10 5/08 (containers) and 10/08 (LDoms). The focus of the blueprint is around 3 major configurations -- performance numbers at 3500 users (small configuration), 7000 users (medium configuration) and 14000 user (large configuration) loads. Hence this blueprint document complements the 14,000 user Siebel 8.0 benchmark that we published earlier back in October 2008.
The blueprint has details around the resource allocations for all the tiers of a typical Siebel deployment to support 3500, 7000 and 14000 concurrent users, offers performance tuning tips that are specific to Solaris and Sun CMT systems, and shows the results from the 3500, 7000 and 14000 user performance tests using Solaris 10's virtualization technologies - Solaris Containers and the Logical Domains.
- All the performance tests were conducted either with Solaris Containers or with the Logical Domains, but not with a mix of both of those technologies.
- Resource allocations were identical in both cases -- that is, with the Solaris Containers and the Logical Domains.
