The three-tier benchmark focuses on day processing (the number of posting to accounts per hour) and night processing (the number of balanced accounts per hour). Running the SAP Account Management 3.0 application, part of the transactional banking category for SAP for banking products, Oracle Database 10g achieved a world record performance result of 10,012,000 postings to bank accounts per hour on a Sun Fire E6900 with 8 UltraSPARC IV+ 1.5 GHz processors and Sun Solaris 10 OS.
During night processing, Oracle and Sun achieved 6,664,000 balanced accounts per hour. The benchmark scenario consisted of 30,000,000 accounts and 600,000,000 postings in the fact table. With this record, Oracle and Sun exceeded the performance of the nearest competitor, running Microsoft SQL Server, by 21 percent on day processing and 56 percent on night processing.
SAP Standard Application Benchmarks were developed by SAP AG to provide comparative load analysis of SAP solutions. [April 21, 2006]
