In the Sarvega case, there is an internal parsing/validation benchmark available from the web site that might be some use, I am sure the other vendors have similar information available. One area to be careful of is the context in which the figures are generated. For example, the performance of parser/validation off-load from Java can be more dependant on Java<->appliance glue issues than the appliance performance itself. Needless to say, figures without specifying any context can be very misleading. Regards, Kev.
