Linux 2.6.24 Through Linux 2.6.33 Benchmarks

,----[ Quote ]
| At Phoronix we have been benchmarking the 
| Linux kernel on a daily basis using 
| Phoromatic Tracker, a sub-component of 
| Phoromatic and the Phoronix Test Suite. We 
| launched our first system in the Linux kernel 
| testing farm just prior to the Linux 2.6.33 
| kernel development cycle and found a number 
| of notable regressions during the past three 
| months. Now with the Linux 2.6.34 kernel 
| development cycle getting into swing, we have 
| added an additional two systems to our daily 
| kernel benchmarking farm. One of the systems 
| is an Atom Z520 system but what makes it more 
| interesting is that the system is using a 
| Btrfs file-system and then the second new 
| system added to the kernel tracker is a 64-
| bit setup. However, to provide a historical 
| look at the Linux kernel performance, we have 
| ran some fresh benchmarks going back to the 
| Linux 2.6.24 kernel and ending with the 
| recently released Linux 2.6.33 kernel.



Benchmarking Debian's GNU/kFreeBSD

,----[ Quote ]
| There has been an effort underway within the
| Debian development community to pull the
| FreeBSD kernel within this distribution to
| provide an alternative to using the Linux
| kernel. In essence with this Debian
| GNU/kFreeBSD project you have the standard
| Debian package set providing a GNU user-land
| with a GNU C library, but the FreeBSD kernel
| is running underneath. The Debian project has
| also been working on Debian GNU/Hurd to
| effectively do the same thing but with the GNU
| Mach microkernel. But unlike Debian GNU/Hurd,
| with the release of Debian 6.0 "Squeeze",
| Debian GNU/kFreeBSD will reach a release
| status. With the Debian Squeeze release being
| just two months away we have decided to
| provide the first public set of benchmarks
| that compare the Debian GNU/kFreeBSD
| performance to that of Debian GNU/Linux. We
| have tested both the 32-bit and 64-bit builds
| of Debian with the Linux and FreeBSD kernels.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
