Ok. I wasn't aware that anyone at Sun had actually done such a metric, especially as across the product line(s), systems have fairly wildly varying capabilities (for example, a T2000 has massive memory bandwidth but proportionally low floating point). Maybe privately you can send me a pointer and we can go talk to the relevant folks. -dp -- Daniel Price - Solaris Kernel Engineering - [EMAIL PROTECTED] - blogs.sun.com/dp _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
