Test set A: Overall performance

Test A computes the total roundtrip time for sending and receiving aggregate objects. The parameters of the test include the type of the aggregate (linked list or array), size of the object (number of items in the aggregate), client-server pair, and protocol. The following client-server combinations were used: sparc10-sparc10, linux-linux, e10k-e10k, all three involving two machines of the given architecture connected by 100 Mb/s Ethernet LAN. The local-remote tests pair two UltraSPARC stations, one at Bloomington, Indiana and the other at Indianapolis, connected by a 155 Mb/s WAN. Appendices A and B give the full set of results for Test A, which are discussed below in Section 4.2.
