Benchmarking Debian's GNU/kFreeBSD

Our next focus was with ray-tracing where we first turned to running the industry standard POV-Ray. With both 32-bit and 64-bit builds, Debian GNU/kFreeBSD was slower than Debian GNU/Linux. There were not huge margins like with the Gcrypt results, but Linux was just over 15% faster.

The second ray-tracing test that we ran was C-Ray. The 32-bit Debian GNU/kFreeBSD really failed in comparison to the 32-bit Linux version of Debian Squeeze. When tossing in the 64-bit numbers, both the FreeBSD and Linux ports ended up performing at the same speed.

With the traditional DES performance using John The Ripper, the 32-bit version of Debian GNU/kFreeBSD was ever so slightly faster than Debian GNU/Linux, but the 64-bit Linux kernel was no match for the 64-bit FreeBSD spin.

The MD5 results with John The Ripper were similar to the DES numbers where the 64-bit Debian Linux was better than our results when running with the FreeBSD kernel, but there was little difference when running in a 32-bit environment.
