Here is the link to the benchmark white paper publication:
Some key highlights from the white paper:
- All tiers of the Siebel CRM Release 8.0 architecture ran on chip multithreading (CMT) processor, UltraSPARC T2 based T5120/T5220 systems running Solaris 10 8/07.
- Multithreading capability of the US T2 processor allowed each of the active Object Manager (OM) processes to run hundreds of Light Weight Processes (LWP), thus utilizing the available resources very effectively. A total number of 30 object managers serviced the work load of 10,000 concurrent users.
- While supporting 10,000 concurrent Siebel users, the entire Sun Solution based on Sun SPARC Enterprise T5120/T5220 servers running Siebel CRM Release 8.0 and Oracle 10g R2 on top of Solaris 10 consumed 1202 watts in a 6U rack space. As a result the T5210/T5220 supports 8.3 users per watt of energy consumed and supports 1666 users per rack unit.
- Apparently this is the best Siebel 8.0 benchmark result out there in terms of the number of users and price/performance. Feel free to compare Sun's 10,000 user result with other published results that you may find at Oracle Siebel Benchmark White Papers web page.
