Re: how to compare the performance of ASA 9 and SQL server 2000?
little max, is this with a specific application, data size/ format, hardware config or just in general.
If its in general then use google for existing benchmarks, if it is specific and you have the licences then go for a parallel run exercise with the application/ dataset you are comparing.
IF you do not have the licences and facilities, set up the same plan for a comparative test but chack out hosted testing facilities to do this, or pass it over to a service provider to do under contract.
