Sorry to blast you. I'm not even done!
I haven't seen an easy benchmark that I can quickly install, run, scrape the results, and then uninstall. I like having a vareity of tests, but all the other tools I've seen either suck, don't come with source, or require a lot of time to install.
Because of this, I'm afraid I'm actually abusing your thread just to get a comparative list of all m machines. I've never had a good opportunity to do it, and you've create the perfect storm.
Anyway, if you need more details about each rig, please just ask. Everything is running Windows XP Pro except for: the 8-way Dell (Windows 2003 Server Enterprise), the Supermicro (Windows 2003 Server Standard), and the second Dell 600SC (2003 Server Standard, too).

Of course, it's fine ... as long as you don't call it "Mike B's stupid SMP Dinosaur because he's too stupid and cheap to upgrade it", or something like that. That machine just dropped another hard drive last night, BTW. It's just getting too old.
Tim_Axe said:That 8-way P3-700 Xeon system is one mean machine! I can't really imagine how much bite it has in regular usage, but it sure made a mark in the benchmarks!
It's an interesting machine to use. The "slow and wide" machines of that era present interesting challenges when writing software. Memory bandwidth for machines like that certainly limits their scaling potential, so you have to think very creatively to get the most from them when writing applications.
Tim_Axe said:I'm not sure why, and haven't had time to look at any code yet or ask any questions.
Me, neither. I'm very eager to tear into the sources.
