Startup AOLserver Benchmark

This benchmark tests how long it takes for AOLserver to start (in seconds).

During the startup process, AOLserver 3.3 (with oacs patches) will compile TCL libraries and perform some database operations, while performing mainly read operations from the hard disk. The results below are taken manually for a number of reference systems .
