I know that these aren't going to show the T2000 in a good light. These are simple CPU intensive single-threaded apps. (If you can call them applications.) The aim was to get a feel for just how well the machine would do.
So I have a twin 360MHz Ultra 60, a twin 1.5GHz V240, a quad 1.28GHz V440, an 8x1.0GHz T200, and a 500MHz SunBlade 100 and - for fun - a cheap X2100 with a 2.2GHz Opteron 148.
I copies the /var/sadm/install/contents file from my desktop into /tmp on each machine, and timed grep, wc, gzip, gunzip, bzip2, bunzip2 on the file (it's about 12 Meg). The times, in seconds, are:
What's clear from this is the the Opteron (not entirely unexpectedly) wins by a distance. And the T2000 is handily outpaced by the V240 and V440 - even accounting for clock speed. In fact, the T2000 seems to be - for the completely unfair single tasking case - more comparable to the USIIe/USIIi in something like a V100 or Netra X1.
Of course, once you take into account the parallelism available, the T2000 might be comparable to a whole rack of the old 1U netra systems.
Now to see if some of our applications can be started up on this machine, and if we can test some applications that would suit the T2000 better.
