New version of SPECweb2005 benchmark
adds ASPX scripts for web server applications

WARRENTON, Va., January 14, 2010 The Standard Performance Evaluation Corp. (SPEC) has updated SPECweb2005, its standardized software for web server performance evaluation, to include ASP.NET (ASPX) scripts.

SPEC members active in developing the new version, called SPECweb2005 V1.30, include AMD, Fujitsu, HP, IBM, Intel and Sun Microsystems.

Multiple options

SPECweb2005 V1.30 gives users the option of measuring performance based on applications employing ASPX, JSP or PHP scripts. The banking, ecommerce and support workloads in SPECweb2005 V1.30 measure peak performance as the maximum number of simultaneous user sessions that a web server is able to support while meeting specific throughput and error-rate requirements.

"This release extends SPECweb2005 to serve those in the web server community using ASPX scripts, while maintaining SPEC's standards for objective and representative performance measurement," says Rema Hariharan, chair of the SPECweb project committee.

Available now

SPECweb2005 V1.30 is available on CD ROM for $1,200 for new licensees, $600 for SPECweb99 upgrades, and $300 for eligible non-profit organizations. Current SPECweb2005 licensees may request a free upgrade. To order, contact the SPEC office: phone: 540-349-7878; fax: 540-349-5992; e-mail:; web:
