SPEC releases SPECsfs2008 file server benchmark

How fast is your file server? SPEC has released a new network file server benchmark, SPECsfs2008. A follow on to the SFS97_R1 benchmark for NFS file servers, the new benchmark adds support for the CIFS protocol. Of course NFS transaction rates cannot be compared with CIFS transaction rates because the workloads are completely different. Both workloads draw from real world measurements of thousands of customer sites. More client types are supported and the benchmark is easier to use than ever.

SPEC award recipients, Network File Server

More SPECtacular awards given at SPEC's 2008 annual meeting in San Francisco, these to members of the System File Server Group. As before, I won't post anyone's name without permission, but you know who you are and SPEC is grateful for your contributions.

SPEC SFS97_R1 is SPEC's benchmark suite for evaluating performance of network file servers using the NFS protocol. The committee has been working to update the workload based on measurements at thousands of customer sites, add support for Windows and Mac OS X clients, and add support for the CIFS protocol. For this important work SPEC recognizes NSPlab, two engineers from another member company which prefers not to be thanked publicly, and Don Capps of NetApp, who is also known as the creator of the IOzone filesystem benchmark.
