Siebel 8.1.1.4 Benchmark on SPARC T5

Hardly six months after announcing Siebel 8.1.1.4 benchmark results on Oracle SPARC T4 servers, we have a brand new set of Siebel 8.1.1.4 benchmark results on Oracle SPARC T5 servers. There are no updates to the Siebel benchmark kit in the last couple years - so, we continued to use the Siebel 8.1.1.4 benchmark workload to measure the performance of Siebel Financial Services Call Center and Order Management business transactions on the recently announced SPARC T5 servers.

Benchmark Details

The latest Siebel 8.1.1.4 benchmark was executed on a mix of SPARC T5-2, SPARC T4-2 and SPARC T4-1 servers. The benchmark test simulated the actions of a large corporation with 40,000 concurrent active users. To date, this is the highest user count we achieved in a Siebel benchmark.

User Load Breakdown & Achieved Throughput

Siebel Application Module %Total Load #Users Business Trx per Hour
Financial Services Call Center 70 28,000 273,786
Order Management 30 12,000 59,553
Total     100 40,000 333,339

Average Transaction Response Times for both Financial Services Call Center and Order Management transactions were under one second.

Software & Hardware Specification

Database Server 40,000 33.43 108.72 GB
Web Server 40,000 29.48 14.03 GB

Finally, how does this benchmark stack up against other published benchmarks? Short answer is "very well". Head over to the Oracle Siebel Benchmark White Papers webpage to do the comparison yourself.
