Hello,

i did an export from Oracle8.1.7 to 10GR2. The 10GR2 is on a new Server, so the 8.1.7 is still running.

I would like to measure the improvement.

I thought about just to make something like this:

NEW SERVER:

SQL> set timing on
SQL> select count(*) from trans;

 COUNT(*)
---------
  1034319

Executed in 0.437 seconds

------------------------------------------------------
OLD SERVER:

SQL> set timing on
SQL> select count(*) from trans;

 COUNT(*)
---------
  1035552

Executed in 1.766 seconds



So one possibly conclusion could be that the new DB is 4x faster than the old one.

But i'm guessing there must be some more sophisticated testing procedure?!

Does someone has any idea how i could prove and test the performance of the new DB?

thanks very much.

the sql you used is very simple.
It may work better in 8i if you reset the HWM and recollect the statistics.

You must be having other sql/procedure/apps/batch jobs that work on 8i?
to start with, Just compare it against 10g (after collecting stats).

configure statspack on both DBS then compare the two reports in peak hours then you can easily judge the performance i think its the most accurate way

As i haven't done anything within these parts of Oracle i'm gonna check the docu for some help how to get started with "statspack".
