Left graph before patches, right one with patches. Paul February 26, at Getting the PTF on the system was a big question mark and probably many users ubm feel uncomfortable with number of available information. I had no performance impact once this fix get applied. IBM did not publish any official information about potential performance impact, neither how the security flaw was solved. Not sure if there is anyone in IT world who has not heard about latest vulnerabilities in the modern chips.

These requirements would make it extremely costly to publish multiple data points for each Power Systems model. There is no difference again.

This has resulted in the publication of multiple rPerf values for each server based on varying processor core counts. Rpperf did a query — show me the jobs which consumed CPU the most.

Unfortunately, IBM is very conservative in published information regarding the vulnerability. The roll out takes time. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: If not, a server reboot is needed. The main reason was to publish data for a broad selection of Power Systems servers.


Nevertheless, IBM has already delivered number of patches. But in the fix description there is an information that an Operating System updates are required too. This site uses cookies. We have carefully put this patch to test systems and closely monitored the performance. As you can see, there is almost the same utilization, no spectacular grow.

These I will installed within next days, and will try to deliver performance update to. This data is far away from precise capacity information, but I said before, this is the quickest way. In the end you can compare wait graphs before and after, and here there are no significant changes either. He can be reached at ccler forsythe.

Bart February 19, at Jimmy May 7, at Since IBM owns and controls the rPerf benchmark, it can report both ibn and estimated data for Power servers. Running industry benchmarks can be very expensive. Do not forget that fixes for VIOSes were released as well. In addition, most benchmark rules require that the full benchmark be run and fully documented for each published data point.

Having this comprehensive set of information makes it easier to estimate the commercial workload CPU performance for any Power Systems server. There is almost no difference in CPU utilization. The graph looks very similar. Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: Home About me Contact. Today Jan 31st we applied the fix on few test systems.

Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Of course, I have no idea what these or those PTFs fixed. Actually, in the OS V7R2 no performance degradation noted either. X We use cookies to optimize your visit to our website. The fix is concurrent as long as you run jbm latest release level.

I just believe they did something.
