Commercial workloads form an important class of applications and have performance characteristics that are distinct from scientific and technical benchmarks such as the SPEC CPU. However, due to the prohibitive simulation time of commercial workloads, it is extremely difficult to use them in computer architecture research. In this paper, the authors study the efficacy of using statistical sampling based simulation methodology for two classes of commercial workloads: a java server benchmark SPECjbb2000 and an On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) benchmark DBT-2.
