TEST REPORT OCTOBER 2008 Performance of Dell and HP servers running Windows Small Business Server 2008
Dell Inc. (Dell) commissioned Principled Technologies (PT) to measure the performance of a Dell and an HP server running Microsofts Windows Small Business Server 2008 (SBS2008): Dell PowerEdge T300 HP ProLiant ML310 G5
The Dell PowerEdge T300 delivered an average of 51.6 percent better performance across the three workloads on Windows Small Business Server 2008 than did the HP ProLiant ML310 G5 (see Figure 1). The Dell PowerEdge T300 produced a 95.1 percent higher performance-per-dollar result across the three workloads on Windows Small Business Server 2008 than the HP ProLiant ML310 G5 (see Figure 2).
We simultaneously ran workloads that simulated three of the functions a typical small business server may have to handle: Web, email, and database service. We used WebBench to simulate Web traffic, Microsoft Exchange Load Generator (LoadGen) to simulate email activity, and SysBench to simulate the database activity. The Workload section provides more information on each of the benchmarks.
Figure 1 presents averaged results for the two servers running SBS2008 on the three workloads relative to the lower-performing server, the HP ProLiant ML310 G5. For each benchmark, we assigned a value of 100 percent to that servers results and then calculated the percentage performance improvement of the Dell PowerEdge T300. This approach makes each data point a comparative number, with higher numbers indicating better performance. Finally, we took the percentage performance Averaged peformance relative to the HP ProLiant ML310 G5 improvement over the HP 1.6 ProLiant ML310 G5 for the three benchmarks and 1.4 averaged them.
1.2 1.0 0.8 0.6 0.4 0.2 0.0
Dell PowerEdge T300 HP ProLiant ML310 G5
As Figure 1 illustrates, while running SBS2008, the Dell PowerEdge T300 delivered an average of 51.6 percent better performance across the three benchmarks than did the HP ProLiant ML310 G5. For each of the two servers, we took the averaged relative performance results in Figure 1 and divided them by the price (see Appendix B). For ease of comparison,
Figure 1: Averaged performance of the two test servers running SBS2008 across the three benchmarks relative to the HP ProLiant ML310 G5. Higher numbers are better.
we then normalized those results to that of the HP ProLiant ML310 G5. As Figure 2 illustrates, the Dell PowerEdge T300 produced a 95.1 percent higher performance-per-dollar result running SBS2008 than the HP ProLiant ML310 G5.
WebBench WebBench 5.0 (128-bit US version) is an industry-standard benchmark for Web server software and hardware. It uses PC clients to send Web requests to a server under test. It generates performance results by incrementally increasing the number of clients making HTTP 1.0 GET requests to the Web server; the result is a curve Figure 2: Normalized performance-per-dollar result of the test servers running showing the servers performance SBS2008 across the three benchmarks. Higher numbers are better. under increasing load. The peak of that curve represents the peak throughput of the server. WebBench reports both the total number of requests per second the server handled and the servers total throughput in bytes per second. To be certain that we found the true peak performance in our testing, we verified that the servers processor utilization reached or was extremely close to 100 percent during the test. LoadGen Microsoft Exchange LoadGen 2007 is an industry-standard tool for benchmarking an Exchange 2007 Mail Server. LoadGen performs tasks to simulate a standard user generating mail activity. When the workload finishes, LoadGen reports the response time, which is the number of seconds necessary to complete the task. SysBench The developers at SourceForge.net (www.sourceforge.net) created SysBench to test various aspects of the performance of servers running database systems. The benchmarks original target was the MySQL database system (see www.mysql.com). Intel created a version of SysBench 0.4.0 that would work with Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition (www.microsoft.com/sql/editions/enterprise/default.mspx). We ran that version in our test. SysBench created a 100,000-row SQL database and executed a batch of online transaction processing (OLTP) transactions against that data.
For testing, we staggered the starting times of the benchmarks to allow each server to ramp up slowly. We began the benchmarks in the following order: WebBench, SysBench, and Microsoft LoadGen. Figure 3 shows a timeline for the benchmark runs. To obtain the final results, we removed the first and last parts of WebBench and SysBench runs, and computed the results based on the 30 minutes of peak performance during the LoadGen run.

Figure 3: The timeline we followed when starting the benchmarks for the multiple-benchmark runs on all servers. The shaded areas from 00:15 to 00:45 represent the period that we measured performance.
Figure 4 presents results for the two servers on the three benchmarks relative to the lower-performing server, the HP ProLiant ML310 G5. For each benchmark, we assigned a value of 100 percent to that servers results and then calculated the percentage performance improvement of the Dell PowerEdge T300. This approach makes each data point a comparative number, with higher numbers indicating better performance. Finally, we took the percentage performance improvement over the HP ProLiant ML310 G5 for the three benchmarks and averaged them. As Figure 4 shows, the Dell PowerEdge T300 running SBS2008 achieved better performance on all benchmarks than the HP ProLiant ML310 G5. Each result below is the median of three runs. We used LoadGen to determine the median for all runs. Average of Web, email, and database scores (relative to HP ProLiant ML310 G5) 151.6% 100.0%

WebBench results We ran WebBenchs default ecommerce API test suite, which generates both secure and non-secure static and dynamic HTTP 1.0 GET requests. While running the ecommerce suite, the clients must negotiate to a secure Web server port using the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. A default WebBench test suite incrementally increases the number of clients making the HTTP 1.0 GET requests to the Web server. As the workload increases the number of clients, the Web servers processor utilization also increases, until the processor in the Web server is saturated with work. Each workload point with a fixed number of clients is a WebBench mix. The ecommerce API test suite begins with a mix that involves one client; the next mix has four clients, and each subsequent mix increases the number of clients by four to a total of 60 clients. We modified the test suite so it
Principled Technologies, Inc.: Performance of Dell and HP servers running Windows Small Business Server 2008 3
would run eight clients with 10 engines per client for the entire test. This allowed us to keep a constant Web load on the server. We performed the standard 16 mixes for testing. A WebBench run reports the total requests per second a server can perform and the total throughput, in bytes per second, that the server delivered. WebBench reports these results for each mix. To obtain the results below, we averaged the requests per second and throughput from the mixes that ran during the peak performance of the benchmark run as illustrated in Figure 3. Figure 5 shows the WebBench peak results in requests per second and in throughput (bytes per second) for the two test servers. Each result below is the median of three runs. Server Dell PowerEdge T300 HP ProLiant ML310 Throughput (bytes per second) 145,744,417.8 138,050,593.2 Requests per second (raw) 9,355.6 8,714.8 Requests per second (relative HP ProLiant ML310 G5) 107.4% 100.0%
Figure 5: Median WebBench results for the two servers. Higher numbers are better.
LoadGen results LoadGen results show the response time each for each server, the time in milliseconds it took to complete a request. Because the object of the server is to handle as many requests as possible, lower scores, which show a server able to handle more requests in a given time, are better. Because the results are in response time for each tasks, we created a weighted average to calculate a final score. To create a weighted average, we used the same procedure used in Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Load Simulator (LoadSim), another tool used to test Exchange Mail Servers that Microsoft has replaced with LoadGen. Figure 6 shows the weighted average we used for testing.

People usually run LoadGen tests on servers with large disk storage systems, i.e., a large number of total disk drives. Because our testing focused on small business servers, which do not typically have a large number of disks, the scaling between the servers was not as good as the other benchmarks. The systems were mostly bottlenecked waiting on the disk, prohibiting a large amount of scaling. This bottleneck created an inverse relationship between SysBench and LoadSim results: as SysBench scores increased, LoadSim scores dropped and vice versa.

For testing we used 75 Microsoft Exchange mailboxes; all of the servers could handle the load while performing other tasks. Figure 7 shows the average response time for both systems. Each result is the median of three runs. Median 95th percentile (relative to HP ProLiant ML310 G5) 145.2% 100.0%

SysBench results For testing, we created a script so each system would perform as many transactions as possible in a given time. The script processed 10,000 transactions as quickly as possible and then started over again. The output shows the completion time in seconds for each group of 10,000 transactions. We calculated the transactions per second by using the following formula: total transactions = transactions per second time in seconds Figure 8 shows the median SysBench results and processor utilization for the two test servers.

Close Windows Explorer once the copy completes. 14. Restart the database service using SQL Server 2005 Management Studio by right-clicking server and selecting Start.
Installing the mail test client We began our testing by installing a fresh copy of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 x64, Enterprise Edition Service Pack 2 on the test client. Before following these instructions, make sure to statically assign an IP address for the client, and then plug that port into the system under test. This allows the client to correctly join the domain. We followed this process for each installation: 1. Assign a computer name of Clientx for the mail client, where x is the client number. 2.

Network test bed configuration
To generate the workload, we used a network with 10 client PCs. Each PC contained an Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz with HT Technology processor, 512MB of system memory, a 40GB hard drive, and a Gigabit Ethernet network adapter. We split eight of the clients into two segments, or subnets, of four clients each. We configured these clients with Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2 and all critical updates available as of June 7, 2007. We connected each segment to the server under test via one NETGEAR GS724T Gigabit Smart Switch. To balance the load on the server and to prevent a network throughput bottleneck, we connected each segment to a separate network port. We used the remaining two clients for the WebBench controller and LoadGen client.
