    Default Is Fedora 15 Faster Than Ubuntu 11.04?

    Phoronix: Is Fedora 15 Faster Than Ubuntu 11.04?

    Ending out May, we have an interesting set of tests comparing the performance of Fedora 15 and Ubuntu 11.04. This is looking at the "out of the box" performance of both operating systems on three different systems. Not only is the actual test result looked at, but we also compared the power consumption of the two operating systems.

    Well done Michael, I think that's one of the best benchmarking articles I've read on Phoronix ever

    A good set of tests were picked, analysis was done on the data with possible explanations for discrepancies

    For once it didn't feel like a load of graphs dumped out of PTS

    More like this please

    Thanks... For those liking the articles more than usual in recent days, it's all a matter of May was great regarding some advertising campaigns... For those that try to dismiss ads or complain about them... So just hope more like them come in June, etc.

    As far as the disk performance discrepancy goes - did you test with SELinux enabled or disabled, on Fedora?

    edit: you say 'out of the box', so I assume 'enabled'; it might be interesting to try with it disabled. Also it'd be interesting to know if you kept the OS default partitioning scheme (in which case the Fedora install would likely have an LVM layer the Ubuntu one would not.)

    Michael,

    Is PTS still self compiling the tested software?
    If so, have you considered adding, whenever possible the built in version to the mix?

    Yes, defaults. Can do some SELinux benchmarks separately if there's interest.

    Then that detracts from ad views otherwise...

    I'd be interested in seeing this too

    Comparing local version, compiled with local gcc and compiled with phoronix gcc too

    That would be very interesting
