Virtualization performance on VMware* ESX using VMmark* benchmark
VMmark* is designed as a tile-based benchmark consisting of a diverse set of workloads commonly found in the datacenter, including database server, file server, web server, and Java* server. The workloads comprising each tile are run simultaneously in separate virtual machines at load levels that are typical of virtualized environments. The performance of each workload is measured and then combined with the other workloads to form the score for the individual tile. Multiple tiles can be run simultaneously to increase the overall score.
A tile is a collection of six diverse workloads concurrently executing specific software. Running on one of two separate operating systems (Windows* or Linux*), each workload runs in its own virtual machine and executes applications found in the entire world's datacenters. Included in a single tile are a web server, file server, mail server, database, Java server, as well as an idle machine.
