1. SPECpower_ssj2008 Benchmark

SPECpower_ssj2008 is the first generation SPEC benchmark for evaluating the power and performance of server class computers.
The benchmark suite consists of three separate software modules:

These modules work together in real-time to collect server power consumption and performance data by exercising the system under test (SUT) with a predefined workload.

1.1 The Workload

1.1.1 Server Side Java Business Application Simulation

The workload is a Java program designed to exercise the CPU(s), caches, memory, the scalability of shared memory processors, JVM (Java Virtual Machine) implementations, JIT (Just In Time) compilers, garbage collection, threads, and certain aspects of the operating system of the SUT.
The workload architecture is a 3-tier system with emphasis on the middle tier. These tiers are comprised as follows:

  1. Random input selection
  2. Business logic (fully implemented by SPECpower_ssj2008)
  3. Tables of objects, implemented by Java Collections (rather than a separate database)

1.1.2 JVM Director

The JVM Director is a separate and distinct mechanism from the actual workload itself (the three-tiered client-server environment), but runs concurrently with the JVM instance(s) of the workload. Like the workload, the JVM Director is also a java application, and as such, runs as its own JVM instance.
The JVM Director can be run locally on the SUT, or it can be run remotely at the user's discretion (see Director Location). Whichever method is employed, the JVM Director and the workload JVM instance(s) will communicate via a TCP/IP socket connection.

1.2 The Control and Collect System

The Control and Collect System is a Java-based application that resides on the controller server. CCS is used to connect to three types of data sources via TCP/IP socket communication:

One of CCS's main functions is to initiate the SPECpower_ssj2008 benchmark iteration. After the benchmark run has started, CCS then collects and synchronizes power data, temperature data, and workload data from the three data sources in real time. CCS then outputs this data into the result files described in this document.

1.3 The Power and Temperature Daemon

The Power and Temperature Daemon (PTDaemon) is a single executable program that communicates with a power analyzer or a temperature sensor via the server's native RS-232 port, USB port or additionally installed interface cards, e.g. GPIB. It reports the power consumption or temperature readings to CCS via a TCP/IP socket connection. It supports a variety of RS-232, GPIB and USB interface command sets for a variety of power analyzers and temperature sensors. PTDaemon is the only of the three SPECpower_ssj2008 software modules that is not Java based. Although it can be quite easily setup and run on a server other than the controller server, in the simplest SPECpower_ssj2008 test bed implementation, the PTDaemon will typically reside on the controller server.

1.4 Result Validation and Report Generation

At the beginning of each run, the benchmark parameters are checked for conformance to the run rules. Warnings are displayed for non-compliant properties and printed in the final report; however, the benchmark will run to completion producing a report that is not valid for publication.
At the end of a benchmark run the report generator module is called to generate the report files described here from the data given in the configuration files and collected during this benchmark run. Again basic validity checks are performed, to ensure that interval length, target load throughput, temperature etc. are within the limits defined in the run rules. For more information see section "2.5.2 Validity Checks" in the Run and Reporting Rules document.

In this document all references to configurable parameters are printed in parentheses with red color using the names from the properties files, e.g. (config.test.sponsor) from "SPECpower_ssj_config.props".

The following properties files are delivered with the benchmark kit:

  • ccs.props
    The CCS properties file includes descriptions of the controller system (ccs.config......) and basic information on the power analyzers and temperature sensors (ptd.pwr1.config......). Also the workload to be run is selected and additional parameters are defined. (ccs.wkld......). Currently only one workload (SSJ) is supported.


  • SPECpower_ssj.props
    This file includes the global control parameters for the SSJ workload which can be changed by the user without invalidating the benchmark results (input.calibration.interval_count).


  • SPECpower_ssj_EXPERT.props
    This file is a superset of the default "SPECpower_ssj.props" configuration file and will be needed for experimental use of the benchmark only. Besides the control parameters allowed to be changed (input.calibration.interval_count) it also includes options for the fixed input parameters which cause an invalid result if changed (input.load_level.count).


  • SPECpower_ssj_config.props
    The characteristics of the test run (config.test......) are specified in this file together with a description of the shared hardware in case of a multi node run (config.shared......).


  • SPECpower_ssj_config_<set_id>.props {>V1.01 only}
    Detailed hardware (config.hw.....) and software (config.sw.....) descriptions of the system under test are stated here. Each instance of this file describes a single host system or several identically configured systems in a set. A heterogeneous configuration with differently configured systems requires one properties file per set.
    This file resides on the system running the JVM Director.
    Currently only single set homogeneous configurations are allowed for a valid benchmark run.



  • 2. Main Report File

    This section gives an overview of the information and result fields in the main report file. Additional information is shown in the Power/Temperature Details Report, including detailed power information for potentially multiple power analyzers, and the Aggregate Performance Report, which is generated for multiple node tests only. The Set Performance Report represents the next level of details and is created only if multiple heterogeneous sets of nodes are used, which is currently not allowed for valid results. This information is further extended in the Host Performance Report and the JVM Instance Performance Report which are generated for each host and each JVM instance including specific configuration and performance details.


    3. Top bar

    The top bar shows the measured SPECpower_ssj2008 result and gives some general information regarding this test run.

    3.1 Headline

    The headline of the performance report includes one field displaying the hardware vendor (config.hw.vendor) and the name (config.hw.model) of the system under test. If this report is for a historical system the declaration "(Historical)" must be added to the model name. In a second field the overall SPECpower_ssj2008 result achieved in this test (overall ssj_ops/watt) is printed, eventually prefixed by an "Invalid" indicator, if the current result does not pass the validity checks implemented in the SPECpower_ssj report generation software. More detailed information about the result metric is presented in section 3.1 of the SPECpower_ssj2008 Run and Reporting Rules.

    3.2 Test sponsor

    The name of the organization or individual that sponsored the test. Generally, this is the name of the license holder (config.test.sponsor).

    3.3 SPEC license #

    The SPEC license number of the organization or individual that ran the result (config.test.spec_license).

    3.4 Hardware Availability

    The date (month) when all the hardware and related firmware modules necessary to run the result are generally available (config.hw.available).
    The date must be specified in the format: YYYY-MM
    For example, if the CPU is available in 2013-02, but the Firmware version used for the test is not available until 2013-04, then the hardware availability date is 2013-04 (unless some other component pushes it out farther).

    3.5 Tested by

    The name of the organization or individual that ran the test and submitted the result (config.test.tested_by).

    3.6 Test Location

    The name of the city, the state and country the test took place. If there are installations in multiple geographic locations, that must also be listed in this field (config.test.location).

    3.7 Software Availability

    The date when all the software necessary to run the result is generally available (config.sw.available). For example, if the operating system is available in Aug-2007, but the JVM is not available until Oct-2007, then the software availability date is Oct-2007 (unless some other component pushes it out farther).

    3.8 System Source

    Single Supplier or Parts Built (config.hw.system_source)

    3.9 Test Date

    The date when the test is run. This value is automatically supplied by the SPECpower_ssj software; the time reported by the system under test is recorded in the raw result file .

    3.10 Publication Date

    The date when this report will be published after finishing the review. This date is automatically filled in with the correct value by the submission tool provided by SPEC. By default this field is set to "Unpublished" by the software generating the report.

    3.11 Test Method

    Possible values for this property (config.test.method) are:

    3.12 System Designation

    Possible values for this property (config.hw.system_designation) are:

    3.13 Power Provisioning

    Possible values for this property (config.hw.power_provisioning) are:

    3.14 INVALID

    Any inconsistencies with the run and reporting rules causing a failure of one of the validity checks implemented in the report generation software will be reported here and all pages of the report file will be stamped with an "Invalid" water mark in case this happens. The printed text will show more details about which of the run rules wasn't met and the reason why. (see section 2.5.2 of the SPECpower_ssj2008 Run and Reporting Rules).


    4 Performance Results Summary

    This section describes the result details for all measurement intervals in a table and as a graph.

    4.1 Performance

    The first three columns of the results table show the measured throughput and the actual percentage of calibrated throughput compared to the target percentage.

    4.1.1 Target Load

    The different target load levels derived from the calibrated throughput, starting with 100% of the calibrated throughput and decreasing to "Active Idle" = 0% or no throughput. The benchmark software schedules the required number of requests to actually achieve the intended throughput levels during each of the measurement intervals, each lasting 240 seconds.

    4.1.2 Actual Load

    The load levels actually achieved during the different phases of the benchmark as a percentage of the calibrated throughput. The percentages must match the target load of each phase with less than 2% deviation (positive or negative).

    4.1.3 ssj_ops

    The number of operations finished during this measurement interval divided by the number of seconds defined for this interval, showing the throughput (workload operations per second) for this period.

    4.1.4 Active Idle

    The last measurement interval running without any transactions scheduled by the workload software. So there is no throughput reported for this interval only the power consumption will be measured and displayed.

    4.2 Power

    This column of the results summary table shows the power consumption for the different target loads.

    4.2.1 Average Active Power (W)

    Average active power measured by the power analyzer(s) and accumulated by the PTDaemon (Power and Temperature Daemon) for this measurement interval, displayed as watts (W).

    4.3 Performance to Power Ratio

    The average throughput divided by the average power consumption for each of the measurement intervals.

    4.4 ∑ssj_ops / ∑power =

    The overall score of the SPECpower_ssj2008 benchmark calculated from the sum of the performance measured at each target load level (in ssj_ops) divided by the sum of the average power (in W) at each target load including active idle.

    4.5 Result Chart

    The result chart graphically displays the results reported in the summary table in one diagram. The red bars show the performance to power ratio (throughput / W) of each target load given on the y-axis graphically (corresponding to the upper x-axis) and numerically as a label in the bar. Longer bars / higher numbers are better. By definition there is no throughput for the "Active Idle" level and so the ratio is always 0. The bold blue line with the markers corresponds to the lower x-axis and shows the average power consumption for each target load given on the y-axis. Lower numbers are better. The thin, vertical, straight line corresponds to the upper x-axis and shows the overall ssj_ops per watt result of the benchmark. A higher number is better.
