White Paper: Tivoli Provisioning Manager 126.96.36.199: 64 Bit System z10 Benchmark Results
The IBM Tivoli Provisioning Manager is an enterprise management application. It provides a centralized and intuitive interface to automate data center provisioning activities and manage IT resource life cycles, integrating with a variety of devices to enable highly accurate server provisioning and software deployments.
IBM Tivoli Provisioning Manager (TPM) 5.1.1 for Linux on System z has recently been made available as the first Linux-based 64 bit TPM version. The 64 bit version has been made available to remedy limitations that have been previously identified during extensive benchmark testing with the 31 bit TPM version.
This document provides results for the first TPM 64 bit on IBM System z10 benchmark. The benchmark was initiated in 2Q2008 with completion in 1Q2009. The benchmark sets new records for TPM, both for overall throughput and concurrency. For example, the benchmark shows that using TPM 5.1.1. 64 bit on IBM System z10 permits superior performance while using half the number of processors versus prior 31 bit benchmarks on IBM System z990.
