Notes / Tuning Information


Benchmark Modifications
Schema Modifications:
  Tablespace sizes were increased to support the Injection rate
  Scripts to create the DB are included in the FDA
  Two indexes were created on the M_largeorder table:
  CREATE UNIQUE INDEX M_lo_idx ON M_largeorder  (lo_id)
  CREATE UNIQUE INDEX M_OL_O_idx ON M_largeorder (lo_o_id, lo_ol_id)
Load Program Modifications:
  The load program was not modified
Reference Bean Modifications:
  No changes were made to the reference beans

Benchmark Configuration Information
Persistence Mode Used:
  CMP mode was used for all beans

  Transaction consistency for those beans specifying field
  groups was proven by manual analysis of the source code.
Durability Requirement Info:
  The Redo log disks are mirrored (RAID 0+1).
  The database commits all changes to the redo
  log when each transaction is completed.
Storage Requirement Info:
  A 45 minute run at an injection rate of 800 increased storage by 4.40 GB.
  This extrapolates to 46.94 GB of storage for an 8-hour run.
  The database system is configured with 365 GB of storage.
Argument Passing Semantics:
  BEA WebLogic 8.1 uses pass-by-value
  as required by the EJB specification

Other Benchmark Information
  This submission used the xerces.jar from the SPECjAppServer2002 kit.
  Round Robin DNS was used to balance workload over multiple WebLogic instances.
  The DNS server was run on one of the application server nodes

General Notes
The Audit beans were modified to use 'select count(*)' instead of
'select count (*)' queries (white space is removed after count)
so that they work with MySQL.
The modified source is in the FDA.
No errors were reported during the final or reproducability run.
