TPC Benchmarks for the Realworld
This goes for all vendors -
I would like to see the TPC benchmarks as they are currently performed. However it would be great if TPC would make it a requirement to provide a real world example of the configuration and have it run the benchmark as a baseline.
The TPC mark of 1.6M transactions comes at a price of 1 transaction for $3.54.
The p570 with it's 8 Power6 cores also has the following
21 Dual Ported 4 Gb Fibre Channel adapters
3312 36GB 15K 4Gb FC Drives
168 73GB 15k 4Gb FC Drives
I would like to see IBM publish a second TPC with the following configuration:
8 Power6 Processors
2 Dual Port FC Cards
32 146GB 15k 4Gb FC Drives. Configured in a RAID 1+0 configuration
