Performance on a IBM system P AIX

12 February 2009 - 03:00 PM

We are testing ProIV on an IBM system P AIX machine. Brief specs are:

JS22 blade
16GB memory
4x4GHz Power6 CPU

We are testing using a sales report that is run with a transparent login and timed until completion. On the initial tests (no load on the current system or the AIX), the real time to run was double that of our current system (~40 minutes compared to ~20).

The results for a test I just ran (normal daily load on linux and no load on AIX) :

Linux (Intel):

real 37m9.482s
user 8m34.950s
sys 3m44.920s

AIX System P:

real 45m26.88s
user 33m14.94s
sys 10m33.55s

There was very little kernel tuning done on our current linux system (just kernel.shmmax = 2147483648), none on the AIX, and the isamdef settings are the same on both systems.

Spinlocks are turned on for both systems
Accessing Pro-isam files only.

Are there any configuration or installation settings that can be changed to correct this. It looks like the AIX system should be much faster, but it is doing 4x more work.

We would like to purchase a new server, with speed speed speed, but due to an IBM San need to stay with IBM.

Any comments would be appreciated.

What Version of Red Hat Linux are you using in Version 5.x

22 May 2008 - 01:19 PM

We are running into some issues running Pro 4 on Red Hat Linux Version ES 5 .... and Yes we understand Pro 4 only supports upto ES 3 for Version 5.5.

Notice in reviewing some other post there are users using ES 4 .... before I investigate/post my problem (iscollect hangs under a heavy load). I thought I would see who is using what revision of red hat linux in version 5.5.. of note its release 553.
