Picture of the Day: Solaris Scales

A picture says more than a thousand words!
Have a look at the picture below.
This is scaling
A steaming Sun SPARC Enterprise M9000 with 64 processors x 4 cores x 2 threads = 512 execution threads running one application in one Solaris 10 image. The screen shot has been taken from an ERP system benchmark which has been published earlier tis year. Special thanks to Joachim Wolf for the screen shot.
The screen shot has been taken using perfbar 1.2. The green part of the bars shows the percentage of user time taken by a processor. The red part is the system time. The system is running 1787 processes which are getting dispatched in a highly efficient way by Solaris 10.
The screen shot had to be scaled down by a factor of 2 to fit this blog. Please click on the picture to enlarge it to the full size.
