    Phoronix: Benchmarks Of Debian Etch, Lenny & Squeeze

    With Debian 6.0 "Squeeze" set to be released in the coming months, we have decided to run a set of benchmarks looking at the performance of Debian 6.0 across different sub-systems relative to the performance of Debian 5.0 "Lenny" and Debian 4.0 "Etch" to see how this new release may stack up.

        Typo on the first page, ext4 should be ext3.

          I wish someone with money to spare on hard drives would prove that.

              The benchmarks that regressed all had something to do with disk IO. The CPU-oriented tasks increased their performance. So I don't think the eglibc transition has anything to do with it; so I think more careful use of barriers and such to improve data security is responsible for the slow-downs. Or at least I hope so.

                OT this is the first time I've looked at Phoronix's benchmarks in some time. I'm not sure if they've only just been introduced but I'm loving the inclusion of error margins.

                  Where have you been then? There have been lots of articles regarding the new improvements that are coming with PTS 3.0 and all that. That error margin thing is one of those improvements.

                    I follow Phoronix mostly just to keep in-touch with general *nix and X/Mesa developments. I generally avoided all the benchmarking stuff because, well, without some expression of the confidence of the results, the results were next to meaningless; there was no way to determine the significance of a given value. Hell, for all I knew, the values plotted were the result of a single test - or possible outlier. I understandably fell into the habit of just skipping over any feed headlines including the words, "test", or, "benchmark", like I do for any including the word, "Apple".

                      Thanks Michael for testing - Debian!

                      Do have any idea how it would stack up against Ubuntu? It wasn't apparent from the article if the hardware was the same as when Ubuntu is tested.

                        Thanks but the fish aren't necessary

                        Wodim, EGlibC, Ice Weasel, and SELINUX.

                        I don't like being forced to use something.

                        Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian, ...

                        Reminds me of the old kingdom.

                          Statistically significantly different.

                          Generally, we should use more than 1 system to do performance comparisons typically with several machines, (at least 20, to get statistically significant results).

                          The preceding article shows results from a completed product versus a new version that may have bug fixes, increased security, etc. Therefore for the more reliable system, we should expect longer path lengths.

                          I am not saying the results are not indicative, but I believe that repeated tests would provide different numbers.
