Benchmark architecture diagram

New features in SPECjbb2013 include:

  • A usage model based on a world-wide supermarket company with an IT infrastructure that handles a mix of point-of-sale requests, online purchases and data-mining operations.
  • Both a pure throughput metric and a metric that measures critical throughput under service level agreements (SLAs) specifying response times ranging from 10ms to 500ms.
  • Support for multiple run configurations, enabling users to analyze and overcome bottlenecks at multiple layers of the system stack, including hardware, OS, JVM and application layers.
  • Exercising new Java 7 features and other important performance elements, including the latest data formats (XML), communication using compression, and messaging with security.
  • Support for virtualization and cloud environments.
