Web Server performance on SPECweb*2005 benchmark

Benchmark description for SPECweb*2005

SPECweb*2005 evaluates the performance of World Wide Web Servers. This benchmark gives Web users an objective and representative way for measuring a system's ability to act as a web server. SPECweb*2005 consists of three separate, distinct workloads, each with its own submetric: SPECweb*2005_Banking, SPECweb*2005_Ecommerce, and SPECweb*2005_Support. While the individual submetric scores do indicate the total number of simultaneous user sessions the server can support, the overall SPECweb*2005 metric for a compliant result is the geometric mean of the three submetrics, normalized to a reference platform score.

Product and Performance Information


1. Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark* and MobileMark*, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. Source: Published and Intel internal data as of February 14, 2011. Please see configuration details links above for system configuration details. For more information go to www.intel.com/performance.

2. SPEC, SPECapc, SPECint2006, SPECfp2006 are trademarks of the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation. See www.spec.org for more information.

3. Intel® Virtualization Technology requires a computer system with an enabled Intel® processor, BIOS, virtual machine monitor (VMM) and, for some uses, certain platform software enabled for it. Functionality, performance or other benefits will vary depending on hardware and software configurations and may require a BIOS update. Software applications may not be compatible with all operating systems. Please check with your application vendor.

4. Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) requires a computer system with a processor supporting Intel® HT Technology and an Intel® HT Technology-enabled chipset, BIOS, and operating system. Performance will vary depending on the specific hardware and software you use. For more information including details on which processors support Intel® HT Technology, see www.intel.com/products/ht/hyperthreading_more.htm.

5. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology requires a platform with a processor with Intel Turbo Boost Technology capability. Intel Turbo Boost Technology performance varies depending on hardware, software, and overall system configuration. Check with your platform manufacturer on whether your system delivers Intel Turbo Boost Technology. For more information, see www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/turbo-boost/turbo-boost-technology.html.

6. Intel® processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/processor-numbers.html for details.

7. Intel® products are not intended for use in medical, life saving, life sustaining, critical control or safety systems, or in nuclear facility applications. All dates and products specified are for planning purposes only and are subject to change without notice.

8. Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmarks or websites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the referenced websites or others where similar performance benchmarks are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmarks are accurate and reflect performance of systems available for purchase.

9. TPC Benchmark* E comparison to prior generation Intel® Xeon® is based on the best published results on each platform. The best published result with Intel® Xeon® processor X5570 was obtained using TPC Benchmark* E kit 1.7, and the best published result with Intel® Xeon® processor X5690 was obtained using TPC Benchmark* E kit 1.12. Differences in kits may impact performance.
