Product and Performance Information


Testing conducted on Apama software comparing 4S Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8180 processor to 4S Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8890 v4. Testing by Software AG. Software AG Apama* Streaming Analytics processing workload. OS: CentOS* 7.2. Testing by Software AG June 2017.
Baseline: 4S Intel® Xeon® processor Intel® Xeon®  E7-8890 v4, 2.2 GHz, BRBDXSD1.86B.0338.R00.1603162127, 512 GB memory, 32 * 16GB DDR4 DIMMs, 1866MHz
New: 4S Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8180 processor, 2.5 GHz, PLYDCRB1.86B.0119.R05.1701181843, 1.5TB memory, 24 * 64GB DDR4 DIMMs, 2666 MHz. These results are all generated with the source of data on a 2 socket Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8180 processor system, which sent events over a pair of bonded 10GbE NICs to the 4 socket system under test. The throughput is in millions of events (location updates) per second. CPU utilization ~ 99% in both cases.


Benchmark results were obtained prior to implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system. 

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.
