The single NSN server, a 1993-vintage Sun SPARCstation 20, which now housed thousands of community and organization Web sites, was in need of major internal reworking.
All the experiments presented herein were conducted on a Sun SPARCstation running Solaris 2.5.
Among its assets are two (30 cm and 20 cm) Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes, donated by Meade Instruments Corporation), two CCD cameras (also donated by Meade), one NETRA Internet server donated by Sun Microsystems, one SparcStation computer, and two Macintosh computers donated by Apple Computer.
These results were gathered on a 75MHz processor Sun Sparcstation 20 with 348MB of RAM and 527MB swap space.
ASCmanager is available now, operating on Sun's SPARCstation server supported by an Oracle database and with either SPARCstation or Windows 2000 client stations.
The server was a SUN SPARCstation 20/ 502MP with two 50-MHz SPARC processors, 96 MB of main memory, and a 4-GB disk drive.
Mass spectra were analyzed using Bruker software on a Sun Sparcstation. The sample potential/first-electrode potential ratio was optimized to achieve optimal resolution for the studied proteins/peptides.
The initial migration time is reduced to 13.9ms running on a SparcStation II connected by a 10Mb Ethernet, which is an order of magnitude better than all other reported results, even if results are normalized (see work by Rousch [1995] for more details on normalized performance results).
Each iteration took between 15 and 20 hr on a Sun SPARCstation workstation.
