Managing benchmark data
The Benchmark Management node in the Administration tab enables you to view, download, and update benchmark data.
A benchmark is a way to compare different kinds of systems with respect to their performance under certain common workloads. Organizations regularly test, assign, and maintain benchmark values to systems submitted by vendors. TrueSight Capacity Optimization provides a method to import these benchmark values.
Benchmarks designated provide backward compatibility to earlier versions of TrueSight Capacity Optimization. BMC strongly recommends that you do not use these benchmarks in new models such as time forecasting models, and so on.
For more information, see:
TrueSight Capacity Optimization can automatically estimate the SPEC rating for physical standalone servers and Virtual Hosts, by using configuration metrics and a comprehensive library of SPEC ratings. This feature is applicable for all servers imported in the TrueSight Capacity Optimization Data Warehouse through different data integrations (according to the availability of configuration data). In particular, this enables the automated estimation of SPEC ratings on servers imported from TrueSight Infrastructure Management.
SPEC ratings automatically assigned are available for several use cases:
- What-if simulation (hardware model change) in Time Forecasting Models and Queuing Network Models
- Residual capacity estimation based on SPEC rating, provided through Virtualizations such as the vSphere and AIX views
The following table lists the benchmarks supported by this TrueSight Capacity Optimization version. It also indicates which benchmarks are supported by new installations of this TrueSight Capacity Optimization version, which ones are supported by upgrades from earlier versions of TrueSight Capacity Optimization, and which ones are in the hardware library.
