Specs: STAC-M3 Benchmarks (Antuco Suite)

Stack under test:

  • Kx Systems kdb+ 2.8
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1 with ext4
  • ION SR-71 and Intel 320 SSD Storage Systm

Tested by: STAC

The code that produced the STAC-M3.ß1.1T.NBBO benchmark results in this report actually implemented STAC-M3.ß1.1T.NBBO-Q (see STAC-M3 Antuco specifications for descriptions of the operations). NBBO-Q involves processing and saving more data as well as more computation. It is valid to claim superior performance if NBBO-Q elapsed time is less than NBBO elapsed time. It is not valid to claim superior performance if NBBO elapsed time is less than NBBO-Q elapsed time; the relative performance is not determined in this case.
