Java benchmarks and performance tools

Ahh, benchmarks and performance, a fun game. Here are two benchmarks that I needed to use today to help demonstrate the difference between platforms:

  1. SciMark 2.0, from the NIST folks.
  2. The VolanoMark benchmark and report.

The SciMark is nicely configured as an applet, so it's very easy to test the speed of client systems. The VolanoMark is more difficult to set up, but may give you a more accurate read when it comes to server side apps.
