Excellent report. That is the type of information that I was looking for and hoping to contribute to myself.

Hello John,

I'm also currently exploring this nice tool. Recently I did small test to check how really differs 32bit and 64bit oracle , and found that swingbench is really easy to setup and possible to do some quick test (I had only few days to test hardware). I did only small amount of load due to lack of disk subsystem.

If anyone interested, my quick test results are here <> I found 5-10% difference and wonder if this is real or this is test issue (test done wrong)

        Swingbench is an excellent toolset and we are pushing our test rig by using it. However I am not sure how to tell when you have an optimum configuration or what a realistic throughput (TPM might be).
