Last week a new SAP Sales and Distribution (SD) Standard Application Benchmark result was published on the SAP benchmark site ( here ).
The result was produced with SLES 11 sp1 running on an IBM Power 730 12-core system. What's particularly cool for us is the result was produced with gcc 4.3.4 as shipped with the SLES 11 distro. For more information on general SAP tunings, an IBM InfoCenter Blueprint paper was published which explains how to tune an SAP implementation on Linux on Power.
The article describes common system tunings, as well as common SAP and DB2 tunings.
Updated: Numerous results have been published on the IBM Power 730 server for the SAP benchmark. See the performance details for the IBM Power 730 for more details. The results have been published for a 12-core and a 16-core POWER7 server running at 3.72Ghz with the SLES 11SP1 operating system.
