New Benchmarks Of OpenSolaris, BSD & Linux

Earlier today we put out benchmarks of ZFS on Linux via a native kernel module that will be made publicly available to bring this Sun/Oracle file-system over to more Linux users. Now though as a bonus we happen to have new benchmarks of the latest OpenSolaris-based distributions, including OpenSolaris, OpenIndiana, and Augustiner-Schweinshaxe, compared to PC-BSD, Fedora, and Ubuntu.

This testing is quite simple as we just ran a set of tests under six different operating systems: Ubuntu 10.10, Fedora 14, PC-BSD 8.1, OpenSolaris b134, OpenIndiana b147, and Augustiner-Schweinshaxe. Testing was done on a system with an Intel Core i5 750 CPU, ECS P55H-A motherboard, 4GB of DDR3 system memory, a 500GB Western Digital Serial ATA 2.0 hard drive, and an ATI Radeon HD 5770 series graphics card.

For reference, Ubuntu 10.10 has the Linux 2.6.35 kernel, GNOME 2.32.0, X.Org Server 1.9.0, xf86-video-ati 6.13.1, GCC 4.4.5, and an EXT4 file-system. Fedora 14 is quite similar with the Linux 2.6.35 kernel, GNOME 2.32.0, X.Org Server 1.9.0, xf86-video-ati 6.13.99, GCC 4.5.1, and the EXT4 file-system. PC-BSD 8.1 was using the FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE kernel, KDE 4.4.5, X.Org Server 1.7.5, GCC 4.2.1, and it was installed using a ZFS file-system rather than the default UFS file-system to see how its performance now compares to the Solaris-based distributions. Next up, OpenSolaris b134, which was the last preview release of the OpenSolaris distribution, had the snv_134 kernel, GNOME 2.28.2, X.Org Server 1.7.4, GCC 4.3.3, and a ZFS file-system. Lastly, OpenIndiana b147 and the new OpenSolaris-based distribution codenamed Augustiner-Schweinshaxe had the GNOME 2.30.2 desktop, X.Org Server 1.7.7, GCC 4.3.3, and the obvious ZFS file-system.

Tests via the Phoronix Test Suite included C-Ray, POV-Ray, BYTE, dcraw, LAME MP3 encoding, Ogg encoding, GnuPG, John The Ripper, NAS Parallel Benchmarks, PostMark, Unpack-Linux, GraphicsMagick, Himeno, 7-Zip compression, and LZMA compression.
