My hardware/network guy is in the process of getting me setup with a new server and has asked a question that I am clueless about. Hopefully the collective wisdom here can provide some guidance. Here is the question:
Please confirm that FileMaker performs better with more threads at a lower clock speed (2.2GHz) or less threads and a higher clock speed (2.8GHz). There is also the option to go to 12 threads at 2.5GHz.
- 12 threads: Intel® Xeon® E5-2420 v2 2.20GHz, 15M Cache, 7.2GT/s QPI, Turbo, 6C, 80W, Max Mem 1600MHz
- 8 threads: Intel® Xeon® E5-1410 v2 2.80GHz, 10M Cache, Turbo, 4C, 80W, Max Mem 1333MHz
- 12 threads: Intel® Xeon® E5-2430 v2 2.50GHz, 15M Cache, 7.2GT/s QPI, Turbo, 6C, 80W, Max Mem 1600MHz
Any insight on this? The server will be Windows server 2012 with 48gb RAM running 2 virtual servers - 1 dedicated to filemaker and the other as our file server for everything else.
