Database performance on TPC Benchmark* E

Enterprise businesses are built on the backs of database vendors. Mission critical Intel® Xeon® processors deliver the on-line transaction processing (OLTP) performance needed to support the heaviest data traffic peaks.

Benchmark description for TPC-E* (from www.tpc.org)

The TPC Benchmark* E simulates the on-line transaction processing (OLTP) workload of a brokerage firm. The focus of the benchmark is the central database that executes transactions related to the firm's customer accounts. Although the underlying business model of TPC-E is a brokerage firm, the benchmark is designed to be broadly representative of modern OLTP systems. TPC-E metric is given in transactions per second (tpsE).

Product and Performance Information

open

1. Performance tests and ratings are measured using specific computer systems and/or components and reflect the approximate performance of Intel® products as measured by those tests. Any difference in system hardware or software design or configuration may affect actual performance. Buyers should consult other sources of information to evaluate the performance of systems or components they are considering purchasing. For more information on performance tests and on the performance of Intel products, visit www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/benchmarks/resources-benchmark-limitations.html.

2. Relative performance for each benchmark is calculated by taking the actual benchmark result for the first platform tested and assigning it a value of 1.0 as a baseline. Relative performance for the remaining platforms tested was calculated by dividing the actual benchmark result for the baseline platform into each of the specific benchmark results of each of the other platforms and assigning them a relative performance number that correlates with the performance improvements reported.
