SPEC is advising SFS licensees and users of the SPECsfs97.v2 and SPECsfs97.v3 metrics that several recently uncovered bugs impact the comparability of results. These flaws can impact the amount of work done during the measurement periods and can greatly reduce the expected working set size. SPEC recommends that users not utilize these results for system comparisons without a full understanding of the impact of these defects on each benchmark result.

See the full notice and the technical document detailing the defects.
