What are "better specs", exactly? It's not at all obvious to me that a
SunFire T1000 would have "better specs" than an ordinary off-the-shelf
PC running Linux. For example, by default, the T1000 has about 80GB of
disk ... compared to about 10 times as much on your common desktop box.
So, again, you'll have to be more precise in your comparisons.

I searched the archives without luck, but thought I recall some people posting these machines were not good with SVN.  Aren't these the ones capable of running a lot of threads but are very slow single thread machines?  The processor is only like 1 Ghz I believe.

It's an UltraSparc, around 1GHz; theoretically 8-way multi-threaded, with shared L2 cache (IIRC, somewhat equivalent to x86 hyperthreading, but a decade older technology).

So maybe with an Apache server receiving a lot of concurrent requests where all of those threads can be used this machine would be OK.  But otherwise, I'd assume it would be much slower than an x86 machine of any kind.

Absolutely. The SunFires, and any other Sparc machines, have not kept up with the rest of the world when it comes to performance (and "specs" in general).

Here's the relevant docco:


You'll note that it says "Copyright 2007" ... not exactly bleeding edge.
