If only!

Tried this on a test server:

# psrinfo -v
Status of virtual processor 0 as of: 02/18/2008 16:37:34
on-line since 01/21/2008 10:00:38.
The sparcv9 processor operates at 2793 MHz,
and has a sparcv9 floating point processor.

We can dream, can't we?

What's actually happening here is that I'm trying out the sparc emulator from Transitive (which now runs on Solaris x86) and it's reporting the speed of the Opteron processors in the box.

is this close enough?
its a primepower 650 with 2.1ghz SPARC64 cpus... i think we have some 2.3ghz ones as well.

What's performance like running sparc stuff in emulation?
