    Phoronix: Linux 2.6.32 Kernel Benchmarks

    With the Linux 2.6.32 kernel being released in a few days, we found it time to benchmark this newest kernel release that brings new drivers, kernel mode-setting improvements, virtualization enhancements, and more.

    I'm starting to think that those big boys should really start testing and profiling their crap. I wonder how 2.6.24 would compare. Good article.

      This x264 boost is rather interesting, but this postmark and iozone regressions are due to the ext4 "problem"?

          No idea what's wrong with ext4, but Con Kolivas needs three cheers for getting them to finally fix their damn scheduler.

            Read: http://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=14285 where PTS shows the specific commit that causes the performance drop.

              I was really psyched about Ext4 when it first came out, but perhaps I should just stick with good old Ext3 for another year...

                  Not lowest. Either 'worst', or 'highest'.

                    Apache benchmark is meaningless. Not sure about others, but it's probably because of change in Ext4 like Michael said. Con's scheduler is slower in Apache. Btw. notice performance in not disk related benchmars is as it should be.
