Business Intelligence with Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v4 Product Family

Bring your business’s best ideas to life by transforming big data and real-time analytics into new business opportunities while ensuring the reliability and uptime of the most business-critical services with the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family.

Business intelligence (BI) or decision support, contains two primary types of workloads: Data warehousing and data mart tools used to create and run data warehouses and data marts, and data analysis and data mining tools used to access data warehouses for online analytical processing (OLAP), data mining, data visualization, web query tools, and so on.

Business Intelligence Queries with TPC Benchmark* H

Business Intelligence Queries with TPC Benchmark* H

The TPC-H benchmark illustrates decision support systems that examine large volumes of data, execute queries with a high degree of complexity, and give answers to critical business questions.

The performance metric reported by TPC-H is called the TPC-H Composite Query-per-Hour Performance Metric (QphH@Size), and reflects multiple aspects of the capability of the system to process queries, including the selected database size against which the queries are executed, the query processing power when queries are submitted by a single stream, and the query throughput when queries are submitted by multiple concurrent users.  See more at: http://www.tpc.org/tpch/

Big Data Analytics Systems with TPCx-BigBench (TPCx-BB)

Big Data Analytics Systems with TPCx-BigBench (TPCx-BB)

The TPC Benchmark* Express-BigBench (TPCx-BB) measures the performance of end-to-end big data analytics by implementing 30 use cases that simulate big data processing, big data analytics, and reporting. The data represented are either structured, semi-structured, or un-structured data types. These use cases are frequently performed by big data operations at retailers with both physical and online store presence.

The TPCx-BB performance metric is called the Big Bench Query-per-minute (BBQpm@Size), where size is the scale factor of the data. The metric reflects three test phases: a load test that aggregates data from various sources and formats; a power test that runs each use case once to identify optimization areas and utilization patterns; and a throughput test that runs multiple jobs in parallel to test the efficiency of the cluster. TPCx-BB is implemented to work with modern big data analytics frameworks residing in the Hadoop ecosystem such as Map Reduce, Hive, Spark, Tez, and MLLIB.

Product and Performance Information

1

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark* and MobileMark*, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more complete information about performance and benchmark results, visit http://www.intel.com/benchmarks.

Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmarks or websites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the referenced websites or others where similar performance benchmarks are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmarks are accurate and reflect performance of systems available for purchase.

3

Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/processor-numbers.html for details.

4

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel® microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2 and SSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel.

Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel® microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel® microarchitecture are reserved for Intel® microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product user and reference guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
