I am thrill to inform you all that Sun has just donated a fully loaded 
T2000 system to the PostgreSQL community, and it's being setup by Corey 
Shields at OSL ( and should be online probably early next 
week. The system has

* 8 cores, 4 hw threads/core @ 1.2 GHz. Solaris sees the system as 
having 32 virtual CPUs, and each can be enabled or disabled individually
* 32 GB of DDR2 SDRAM memory
* 2 @ 73GB internal SAS drives (10000 RPM)
* 4 Gigabit ethernet ports

For complete spec, visit

I think this system is well suited for PG scalability testing, among 
others. We did an informal test using an internal OLTP benchmark and 
noticed that PG can scale to around 8 CPUs. Would be really cool if all 
32 virtual CPUs can be utilized!!!

Anyways, if you need to access the system for testing purposes, please 
contact Josh Berkus.
