IBM POWER rPerf and CPW Consolidated Data (inc POWER9) (IBM STG Lab Services UK&I POWER Team)

Notify me of new comments via email. This site uses cookies. The main reason was to publish data for a broad selection of Power Systems servers.

There is almost no difference in CPU utilization. Jimmy May 7, at In addition, most benchmark rules require that the full benchmark be run and fully documented for each published data point. Read The Current Issue: Bart February 19, at If your workload is better aligns with two threads per processor core, you should consider reducing the published POWER7 rPerf numbers by approximately 15 to 20 percent to get a more reasonable representation of its rPerf value.


I just believe they did something. Patching is scheduled in waves.

IBM Power System CPW Performance Data: POWER8 vs. POWER9 ScaleOut Models

I will try to update this post within next days, because last Friday Note that rPerf can only be used for making comparisons within Power servers. I will be giving updates rpeef comming weeks.

Not sure if there is anyone in IT world who has not heard about latest vulnerabilities in the modern chips.

Disk Flash Servers Software Tape. I did a query — show me the jobs which consumed CPU the most.

IBM Systems Magazine – More rPerf Resources

poaer Since IBM owns and controls the rPerf benchmark, it can report both actual and estimated data for Power servers. By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. Martin February 19, at Charlie Cler supports customers in a solutions-architect role at Forsythe Technology Inc.

Having this comprehensive set of information makes it easier to estimate the commercial workload CPU performance for any Power Systems server.

Mark as Duplicate

In the end you can compare wait graphs before and after, and here there are no significant changes either. The graph looks very similar.

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. The amount of rPerfs required to run existing workloads can be determined and used to size new servers.


You are commenting using your WordPress. This has resulted in the publication of multiple rPerf values for each server based on varying processor core counts. But in the fix description there is an information that an Operating System updates are required too.

To find dperf more, including how to control cookies, see here: I wrote a post how to collect it few years ago here. IBM did not publish any official information about potential performance impact, neither how the security flaw was solved.
