RPE2, or Relative server Performance Estimate 2, is a computer benchmark developed by Ideas International to compare the relative performance of servers built on x86, IA-64, and RISC processor architectures.

The benchmark is a composite of results, or estimated results, from the SAP SD Standard Application Two-Tier benchmark, TPC-C, TPC-H, SPECjbb2005, SPECint, and SPECfp benchmarks. The benchmark was created in 2005, replacing an earlier benchmark called RPE.[1]

RPE2 data is incorporated into some server capacity planning tools, such as the ATS Server Consolidation Monitor from IBM[2] and Data Center Intelligence software from CIRBA.[3]
