Bio info - who the hell is nickyv?
By nickyv on Apr 19, 2005
I graduated college some time in the dark distant past and started working for Sun Ireland. The group I joined consisted of 2 engineers and an intern. This was the original Performance PIT, benchmarking each build of Solaris using perhaps a dozen benchmarks on a build by build basis. Roll on a number of years and the team has expanded to almost a dozen people with hundreds of benchmarks executed on each build of Solaris, to say nothing of the analysis. Welcome to the wonderful world of the Performance lifestyle.
In the last few months we have moved labs as we increase coverage and prepare to ramp up for testing of open solaris. The new lab (pictured above) provides ample parking for all our machines, although our site facilities may differ on the point.
