The following machines were used in all tests:
- Hewlett Packard 9000/777/C110, Uniprocessor 120MHz,
256MB Ram, motherboard-integrated 10BaseT network interface
card; loaded with two versions of the HP-UX operating
system: HP-UX 10.2 Release B.10.20 Version A, and HP-UX
11.0 Release B.11.00 Version A. This machine was used as
- Sun Ultra-II Sparc 10, Sparcv9 Uniprocessor 440MHz,
512MB Ram, motherboard-integrated 10/100BaseT network
interface card, running SunOS 5.7. This machine was used
as the client.
All tests were done using the netperf  performance benchmarking
utility. All machines were connected via crossover
cable for TCP and UDP point-to-point latency tests.
For multiple-client, server tests, all machines were
connected to an unloaded Netgear 24-port 10/100Mbps
Fast Ethernet switch.
