    BenchMarch comparison between SunFire & VCenter processors

    800808
      Dear Oracle Server Experts,


      We have 2 Sun Fire servers running Solaris 10 (x86) with the following CPU specifications in my organization:


      Sun Fire X2200 M2 with Quad Core Processor

      Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 2376 CPU 1

      Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 2376 CPU 2

      8GB RAM


      Sun Microsystems Sun Fire X4100 M2

      Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 2356 CPU 1

      Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 2356 CPU 2

      16GB RAM


      I have recently ported both of these servers onto a VMWare VCenter Server with the following specifications:


      VCenter Server, 5.1.0, 799731

      Pentium II CPU socket #0


      VCenter Server, 5.0.0, 623373

      Pentium ® Pro CPU socket #0

      Pentium ® Pro CPU socket #1


      The VM processors appear to be significantly less than those on the original servers but I am not familiar or could not locate relevant hardware benchmark comparison between them. Could anyone provide advice / document referrals on their comparable differences in order to determine the feasibility on using them in a production environment.


      Your advice would be much appreciated.


      Thanks,


      George
