Comparison to Kanaga results after February 2014 is not necessarily valid due to a change in the benchmark policy (STAC-M3 Benchmark Specs - Kanaga Rev H) to allow the pre-loading of data.

Qualified members of the STAC Benchmark Council may access the STAC-M3 Benchmark specifications used in this benchmark and the STAC-M3 Test Harness software. They may also request the kdb+ programs used to generate these benchmark results, which are kept in the STAC Vault.
