STAC Report: RMDS 6 on IBM System x3650 with Novell SLES 9
Best two-socket GigE RMDS performance in a number of areas STAC has just released a study of the Reuters Market Data System (RMDS 6) on the IBM System x3650 server with 2 Dual Core Intel Xeon 5160 3.0 GHz processors, running Novell SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 9.3 and communicating over Gigabit Ethernet. In the project, STAC optimized and benchmarked the Reuters Market Data System in a traditional topology on the IBM Servers. The results are the highest Point-to-Point Server fanout and highest MarketFeed throughput for a Source Distributor achieved to date on a two socket server for this topology: - 2.59 million outbound user updates per second in the Point-to-Point Server fanout test - 420,000 updates per second through a Source Distributor machine with MarketFeed Additionally, this stack was able to achieve the highest throughput, 550Kups, in a low latency configuration of RMDS in a traditional topology with ethernet.
