Benchmark Results

Sort Solution scales excellent on single and multiprocessor (SMP) machines..


The machine used to perform these benchmarks was a Pentium-90 with 3 rather slow 1 GB hard disks (SCSI-2) and 64 MB RAM running under Windows 95. All files are completely random, the whole record was used as the sort key.

Number of Records Record Size File Size Time
1 Million 20 Byte 20 MB 44 seconds
100.000 20 Byte 2 MB 0.8 seconds
100.000 100 Byte 10 MB 9 seconds
1 Million 8 Byte 8 MB 18 seconds

The following results are from a Dual-166 Pentium with 64 MB RAM running Windows NT 4.x. The sort key was a 4 Byte Integer.

Number of Records Record Size File Size Time
100 Million 10 Byte 1 GB 30 Minutes
200 Million 10 Byte 2 GB 62 Minutes
400 Million 10 Byte 4 GB 140 Minutes
