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

Actually, in the OS V7R2 no performance degradation noted either. The graph looks very similar.

To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: Martin February 19, at By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. I will be giving updates in comming weeks. Unfortunately, IBM is very conservative in published information regarding the vulnerability.

This has resulted in the publication of multiple rPerf values for each server based on varying processor core counts. Read The Current Issue: Do not forget that fixes for VIOSes were released as well. Since IBM owns and controls the rPerf benchmark, it can report both actual and estimated data for Power servers.


I will try to update this post within next days, because last Friday This tool collects statistics delivered by the HMC, which are the processor cycles dispatched by the Power Hypervisor. Getting the PTF on the system was a big question mark and probably many users still feel uncomfortable with number of available information.

In the end you can compare wait graphs before and after, and here there are no significant changes either. Email required Address never made public. Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: These I will installed within next days, and will try to deliver performance update to. Bart February 19, at But in the fix description there is an information that an Operating System updates are required too. Having this comprehensive set of information makes it easier to estimate the poqer workload CPU performance for any Power Systems server.

There is no difference poer. Patching is scheduled in waves.

Of course, I have no idea what these or those PTFs fixed. For workload migrations and server consolidation projects, rPerf data is frequently used for CPU sizing.

This data is far away from precise capacity information, but I said before, this is the quickest way. 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.

Cover letter again is very mysterious. In addition, most benchmark rules require that the full benchmark be run and fully documented for each published data point.

Jimmy May 7, at I had no performance impact once this powsr get applied. The first patch was delivered on January 9th. Paul February 26, at We use cookies to optimize your visit to our website. Many benchmarks exist for comparing servers, so why did IBM create the rPerf measurement?
