Linux or FreeBSD is faster now

Saturday, March 8th, 2008

I wrote about FreeBSD 7 Release on the other day and mentioned it has 15% better performance than best performing Linux kernel when run on multicore systems. There is a report from Slashdot that mentioned “Linux kernel developer Nick Piggin reran the benchmark today and came to a different conclusion.” Ok, which one is faster now? Do we really care about that?

Sysbench was used to do the benchmark, and mySQL was used for the test.
Enjoy the benchmark result here.
