This documentation supports releases of BMC Helix Continuous Optimization up to December 31, 2021. To view the latest version, select the version from the Product version menu.

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. BMC Helix Continuous Optimization provides a method to import these benchmark values.

Supported benchmarks

BMC Helix Continuous 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 BMC Helix Continuous Optimization Data Warehouse through different data integrations (according to the availability of configuration data). 

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 BMC Helix Continuous Optimization version. It also indicates which benchmarks are supported by new installations of this BMC Helix Continuous Optimization version, which ones are supported by upgrades from earlier versions of BMC Helix Continuous Optimization, and which ones are in the hardware library.
