    Performance Windows 2003 32bit vs 64bit

    Hi,

    Because I would like to use without any problem more the 2 or 3 GB of RAM I was thinking to migrate from Windows 2003 32bit to Windows 2003 64bit. I would then also migrate from Oracle 10gR2 32bit to Oracle 10gR2 64bit.

    Are there any performance impacts when I migrate Windows and Oracle from 32bit to 64bit?

    Thumbs down


    Not with Oracle, but WinDoze (non)performance on either machine is terrible.

    Cool


    Too bad..(I just had to put in my little rant).

    It would seem obvious that 64 beats 32 anytime, what we have experienced is that more processors+memory = better performance.

    Good luck!

    Hi dear all,

    Is it really proven that linux performs better the windoz?
    Given the same specs/configuration of server?

    My guess is that they are just equally good


    Thanks

    If you know what you are doing you can squeeze some pretty decent performace out of oracle on a windows box. I'd say that the 64bit will be better that 32 but I couldn't tell you by how much.

    oh and more memory doesn't always equal better performace.
