Benchmark Details

Oracle WebLogic Server with Oracle Database 11g achieved 11,057.07 SPECjAppServer2004 JOPS@Standard (jAppServer Operations Per Second). The Java Application Server was running on a four-socket Dell PowerEdge R910 server with the new Intel® Xeon® X7560 2.26 GHz processor. Oracle Database 11g was running on an identical hardware configuration. Both the application server and database server were running Oracle Enterprise Linux.
SPECjAppServer2004 is a multi-tier benchmark for measuring the performance of a representative J2EE application and each of the components that make up the application environment, including hardware, application server software, JVM software, database software, JDBC drivers and the system network. The specifications for the SPECjAppSever2004 benchmark standards were last modified in February 2007. For more information, visit
