Hi guys! I'm writing to see if any of you have suggestions on how I could benchmark Apache on a Sun T2000 Niagara machine, running kernel 2.6.22-15-sparc64-smp.

What I'm finding difficulty with is placing the focus on the architecture - how can I doctor the benchmarks to see what the multicore architecture is doing for Apache? I only have access to Ubuntu on the T2000 (so I can't do a comparison between two OS's, for example), and have to run the benchmarks locally (because a "real-world" load can't be placed on the server).

Any insight will be greatly appreciated.
