Benchmarks Of Fedora 9 Through 11

Crafty, which is an open-source chess engine, performed roughly the same too.

With dcraw to measure the RAW to PPM image conversion process, slightly more time was needed under Rawhide than in Fedora 11.

SQLite had a nasty performance regression in some recent kernel releases, though this is corrected in Fedora Rawhide. Going back to our last round of kernel benchmarking, we found serious regressions in the SQLite performance within the Linux 2.6.27, 2.6.28, and 2.6.29 kernel series. In our 2.6.29 vanilla kernel, the SQLite performance returned to its 2.6.25 and earlier values.

This regression is indeed iterated by today's Fedora SQLite results, though even with Fedora 11 shipping with the Linux 2.6.29 kernel, it still had a performance problem -- likely due to some patches found in the F11 kernel or its configuration. Fortunately, with the 2.6.30-based Rawhide, this is not a problem. SQLite performance is important considering its use within Mozilla Firefox and other applications for their database needs.

In our last test, which looked at the PostgreSQL performance, Fedora 11 was significantly faster than Fedora 9/10. The performance though had dropped some in Rawhide.
