os performance testing scenario
I'm considering a(or some) scenario to evaluate a UNIX like OS' performance. Now , i want to build a enterprise server on it , such as a j2ee server, then load the server.
But I'm not sure if it's comprehensive. i must detect the capability of CPU/Memory utilization, response speed, networking, and process speed.
The major aim of the OS is to be a network server , so it will be enough if the senario can represent the OS' capability in general network task.
Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Re: os performance testing scenario
I'm not quite sure, I fully understand your question. But I would suggest that you run a test against the OS that your using in production today and then compare it against the new OS. Make sure to limit as many variables as you can, for example make sure to use the same server with the settings as close as you can get them and run the test the exact same way both times. That should give you a good idea whether you should use the new OS or stick with the older OS.
If your look to see what the constraints are on your server, you should run a scalability and find out what your server can handle before it stops responding. Then run a load test with your user load just under the threshold that you found on the scalability. That should also give you a good idea of what the server will handle.
