"The Netfinity 5000 server has produced the first SPECweb99 score on an Intel-based server running the Linux operating system. Configured with two 600MHz Intel Pentium III processors with 512KB L2 cache and 2GB of memory, running Red Hat Linux 6.1 and Zeus Web Server 3.3.2, the Netfinity 5000 demonstrated the capability to support a total of 404 simultaneous connections at a throughput of 1,221.8 operations per second."

"This Netfinity performance milestone was achieved using Alteon Networks' ACEnic Gigabit Ethernet Adapter and the ACEswitch 180 GbE, a per-port-selectable 10/100/1000 Mbps switch."

"SPECweb99 measures the maximum number of simultaneous connections, requesting the predefined benchmark workload that a Web server is able to support, while still meeting specific throughput and error-rate requirements."
