IBM has published a brief report that eSever x232 and x342
servers recorded number-one results for SPECweb99 performance in 1-
and 2-way configurations using the 1.13GHz(1) Pentium III with
512KB L2 cache and 4GB of memory, and running Red Hat Linux 7.1
with TUX 2.0.
Both servers supported a total of 3,227 simultaneous connections
in a 2-way configuration, and 1,820 simultaneous connections in a
1-way configuration. These results set a new record for Intel-based
2-way SMP servers.
