SPECweb99_SSL Result

 IBM : pSeries 630 Model 6E4 (1000MHz)               ||     NC   SPECweb99_SSL
 Zeus Technology Ltd. : Zeus 4.0r2                   ||        
   SPEC has determined that this result was not in compliance with the
   SPECweb99_SSL run and reporting rules. Specifically, the original tester
   has discovered that performance of the SUT shipped to customers did not
   achieve same results (within 5%) thus failing to meet the 3-month
   availability requirement.
