Commercial workload performance in the IBM POWER2 RISC System/6000 processor
by M. T. Franklin, W. P. Alexander, R. Jauhari, A. M. G. Maynard, B. R. Olszewski
We describe features of the POWER2 processor and memory subsystem that enhance RISC System/6000® performance of commercial workloads. We explain the performance characteristics of commercial workloads and some of the common benchmarks used to measure them. Our own analysis methods are also described.
