Tuning Information
To support execution of the benchmark in distributed mode, five seperate databases
corresponding to various domains of the SPECjAppServer benchmark were created. The
tuneXA_db2.bat script included within the FDA was used to modify the configuration

provided by the following files in the FDA.

Notes / Tuning Information
The load driver utilized the IBM JDK included with WebSphere 5.0.1
Application Server (J2RE 1.3.1 IBM Windows 32 build cn131-20030121).

Benchmark Modifications
Schema Modifications:
  The scripts used to create the distrubuted databases are located within the FDA. Two
  additional indicies were added for the M_LargeOrder table in the manufacturing domain.
  The DDL to create these indicies are included in the FDA /schema/sql directory.
Load Program Modifications:
  The program used to initially load the SPECjAppServer database was modified for the distributed
  configuration. The original code created a connection to a single database to populate the tables
  with data. In a single database scenario such as this, everything works correctly since the application
  can find the appropriate tables in the same database. However, in a distributed database configuration,
  the tables do not exist in the same database. Consequently, the load program was modified to make
  additional connections to the seperate databases and populate the tables. This required adding an
  extra property file for the util database. The modified code is located in the FDA /src directory and
  the corresponding load.jar file is located in the FDA /schema directory.
Reference Bean Modifications:
  No modifications were made to the reference beans.

Benchmark Configuration Information
Persistence Mode Used:
  All beans were deployed using Container Managed Persistence (CMP).
Isolation Requirement Info:
  All beans were deployed with the isolation level set to REPEATABLE_READ. DB2
  translates this isolation level to Read Stability.  Read Stability ensures
  that all rows referenced in a transaction have a read-lock associated with
  them to ensure that other transactions cannot change the rows until the first
  referencing transaction completes.
Durability Requirement Info:
  To ensure database durability, RAID-1E enhanced disk mirroring was used for
  the database log files.
Storage Requirement Info:
  Over the course of a 45 minute run at an injection rate of 252, database storage
  increased 209 MB. Given a linear scale, an eight hour run at the same injection
  rate would increase storage 2230 MB. The disk array enclosure was configured
  with 118 GB of disk storage.
Argument Passing Semantics:
  WebSphere 5.0.1 Application Server uses pass-by-value semantics by default.

Other Benchmark Information
  This submission used the xerces.jar from the SPECjAppServer2002 Kit. This jar
  is included with the application ear found in the FDA.

General Notes
No errors were encoutered in the driver error logs.
