  12. 12. IBM PSSC Customer Center – Informix benckmarks February 2012 : POWER Benchmark in Montpellier (Business context) X is one of the market leaders in the European insurance industry. The objective of the benchmark was to validate this growth capability of the DWH/DSS solution Customer main infrastructure: Mainframe: IBM servers & IBM DS8K storage UNIX: IBM POWER servers & HDS USP-V DatawareHouse / DSS infrastructure running on UNIX platform: Server: 2 x POWER 795 in turbo mode (20 CORES / 650GB) Storage: 2 x HDS USP-V (LVM mirror) with 33 TB each, throughput 5 GB/sec Software: Informix XPS 8.51 © 2012 IBM Corporation
  13. 13. IBM PSSC Customer Center – Informix benckmarks February 2012 : POWER Benchmark in Montpellier (Overall benchmark objectives) Goal of this benchmark is to validate solution scalability for a 330% volume growth within the next 3 years. Demonstrate scalability of the POWER 795 technology Demonstrate performance of the DS8800 storage system Informix best practices X had pre-defined and selected the following use cases Batch processes (SQL stream) with related SLA I/O workload measurement on DS8800 The project requires Hardware and software stack using latest technologies Relevant dataset Representative workload generation © 2012 IBM Corporation

  15. 15. IBM PSSC Customer Center – Informix benckmarks February 2012 : POWER Benchmark in Montpellier (performance tips) Benchmark team applied AIX good practices to optimize POWER ressources : RSET gain approximatly 40% : Details taken from our benchmark : In our case, the optimal number of IFX CoServers was 9. To fit with the HW design, we have chosen to run with 8 CoServers (2 CoServers per Book) Book0 => CoServer1 and CoServer5 Book1 => CoServer2 and CoServer6 Book2 => CoServer3 and CoServer7 Book3 => CoServer4 and CoServer8 So, in AIX, 8 RSETs (one for each CoServer) were created with the following command : mkrset -c <set of cpu> [ -m <memory> ] rsetname mkrset -c 0-43 -m 0 COS/1 mkrset -c 44-91 -m 0 COS/2 More details on this AIX feature > http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/aix/v6r1/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.aix.cmds%2Fdoc%2Faixcmds3%2Fmkrset.htm © 2012 IBM Corporation
