Read The Current Issue: For workload migrations and server consolidation projects, rPerf data is frequently used for CPU sizing. These requirements would make it extremely costly to publish multiple data points for each Power Systems model.

If not, a server reboot is needed. The first patch was delivered on January 9th. Martin February 19, at Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here In the end you can compare wait graphs before and after, and here there are no significant changes either.

Email required Address never made public. I will be giving updates in comming weeks. These I will installed within next days, and will try to deliver performance update to. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. In addition, most benchmark rules require that the full benchmark be run and fully documented for each published data point.

Nevertheless, IBM has already delivered number of patches. Paul February 26, at Since IBM owns and controls the rPerf benchmark, it can report both actual and estimated data for Power servers. This site uses cookies. We use cookies to optimize your visit to our website.


Of course, I have no idea what these or those PTFs fixed. Bart February 19, at The fix is concurrent as long as you rpsrf the latest release level. Today Jan 31st we applied the fix powre few test systems. If you would like to change your cookie settings at any time please view our privacy policy for additional information.

IBM Power Systems Performance Report

He can be reached at ccler forsythe. We have carefully put this patch to test systems and closely monitored the performance. The graph looks very similar.

I wrote a post how to collect it few years ago here. More Articles From Charlie Cler. I will try to update this post within next days, because last Friday The amount of rPerfs required to run existing workloads can be determined and used to size new servers. X We use cookies to optimize your visit to our website. Getting the PTF on the system was a big question mark and probably many users still feel uncomfortable with number of available information. The main reason was to publish data for a broad selection of Power Systems servers.

This has resulted in the publication of multiple rPerf values for each server based on varying processor core counts. As you can see, no significant grow after patching. This tool collects statistics delivered by the HMC, which are the processor cycles dispatched by the Power Hypervisor.

This data is far away from precise capacity information, but I said before, this is the quickest way. The roll out takes time. Home About me Contact. The only way how to solve it, is to redesign the chip or patch the OS in the way that it will not allow to use this vulnerability. Not sure if there is anyone in IT world reprf has not heard about latest vulnerabilities in the modern chips.

Disk Flash Servers Software Tape. Note that rPerf can only be used for making comparisons within Power servers.

You are commenting using your Facebook account. I had no performance impact once this fix get applied. Actually, in the OS V7R2 no performance degradation noted either. Cover letter again is very mysterious. Having this comprehensive set of information makes it easier to estimate the commercial workload CPU performance for any Power Systems server.

Charlie Cler supports customers in a solutions-architect role at Forsythe Technology Inc. Unfortunately, IBM is very conservative in published information regarding the vulnerability.
