Part III: Appendixes > Benchmarking the Netscape Enterprise Server

A.7. Benchmarking the Netscape Enterprise Server

For optimal performance in benchmark situations, make sure that Content Management, Search, and Agents are disabled. These functions are controlled through the admin server. Bring up the admin server and go to Web Publishing | Server State. Change the state to off, and apply the change. Next, go to Agents& Search | Search State. Change this state to off, and apply the change. Note that both states may already be set to off.

A.7.1. SPECweb96 Tuning

SPECweb96 uses a very large data fileset. This fileset far exceeds the Netscape Enterprise Server's expected fileset size. For instance, on the Netscape web site, we are able to obtain more than an 80% cache hit rate with a 10MB cache. With SPECweb96, a 10MB cache can yield cache hit rates as low as 20% (this number varies depending on the SPECweb96 load requested; larger loads use larger filesets).
