AIX RPERF PDF

IBM’s Relative Performance (rPerf) metric is a great tool for comparing commercial workload performance between different Power System servers. It’s often. This post outlines a recent Nigel Griffiths tweet about estimating rperf for your LPAR. Read on to find out more. Articles on IBM AIX performance including server throughput, system performance and IBM AIX commands.

If it says estimated then it is NOT an official number. The amount of rPerfs required to run existing workloads can be determined and used to size new servers. Additionally, the actually real world performance of a given server might be affected over time by improvements or bugs in the firmware, AIX, or the application while the official rPerf is seldom changed in the Power Systems Performance Report after the initial release of the server model.

Read The Current Issue: Make sure you have the latest rperf version Run: Particularly, take and early opportunity to apply the first two updates after the initial release.

But I hope this blog entry will help every one to either get it right first time or at least set realistic expectation and outline some prime areas that will need investigation to realise benefits, thanks Nigel Tags: Running the same computer benchmark on multiple computers allows for comparison.

This is normal tuning like disk queue depth, memory use, large network packets. There is no way to convert a roltp number to a rPerf.

You will have to apply your own rules for that. There is no simple way to convert from roltp to rPerf – sorry. Implement these techniques to improve data-center resiliency.

But Rpfrf hope this blog entry will help every one to either get it right first time or at least set realistic expectation and outline some prime areas that will need investigation to realise benefits, thanks Nigel.

Recent AIX version are much better out of the box but the basics still need to be monitored and checked. Since IBM owns and controls the rPerf benchmark, it can report both actual and estimated data for Power servers.

This is because the doubling of transactions may be based on doubling the number of threads of work rather than doubling the speed of each thread. The rperf numbers are only available for certain number of CPUs. If you are break just one or two and then only a little bit then you never know – “you might get lucky”.

However, there are times when this approach isn’t possible.

Note that rPerf can only be used for making comparisons within Power servers. Management has already specified the software architecture and is rpedf to start hardware procurement.

Running industry benchmarks can be very expensive. Type in a Name: The most exciting POWER6 enhancement, live partition mobility, allows one to migrate rpeff running LPAR to another physical box and is designed to move running partitions from one POWER6 processor-based server to another without any application downtime whatsoever.

The pSeries is the baseline reference system and has a rerf of 1. Disk Flash Servers Software Tape. This is the configuration used in working out rPerfs and unused DIMM slots or minimum memory will reduce performance. In addition, most benchmark rules require that the full benchmark be run and fully documented for each published data point.

Latest AIX with Service Packs – aiix all benchmarks, the best operating system version is used to get those latest performance fixes and improvements. This is especially important for older, single threaded applications that cannot exploit the benefits of SMT.

Specifically, a computer benchmark is a computer program that performs a strictly defined workload set of operations and returns some form of measurable result i.

You have to be realistic and understand that you will need to be able zix move up to later levels of software and firmware to take advantage of improvements.

Having stated that, many people use rPerfs as a simplistic way of preparing a guesstimate to planning new machines based on running POWER workloads for both workload migration and server consolidation. For example, suppose that a company has aixx to roll out a new Web-based ordering system. There are similar assumptions when dealing with LPARs of smaller sizes than the official rPerf numbers. In this case, the script guesses the rPerf based on rPerf numbers in a fairly crude way.

If you want to know what rperf used to rperc out your rating use: AIX Live Update with This has resulted in the publication of multiple rPerf values for each server based on varying processor core counts.
