    FreeBSD has always dominated Linux, it is a go to OS for DDoS mitigation hardware and ZFS clusters, Linux's TCP/IP stack cannot compete and breaks down even under miedcore attacks. The benchmarks in this article don't seem to reveal FreeBSD's true superiority, tests with more common ethernet card would be welcomed.

    10GbE is still a dumb and expensive choice for typical home enduser, hard to believe that its been more than 15 years and motherboards are still equipped with 1GbE, for $50 bucks and some hunting on ebay you can get yourself 40GbE InfiniBand setup, stuff that is used in supercomputers, no need to buy stupid overpriced ethernet switches as LinusTechTips would wash down to its herd audience.

      There is nothing to reveal.

      We get it, you watch LinusTechTips.

        Well, FreeBSD dominated only in file system (ZFS) so far. However, it seems it's going to change, because they're aiming at Linux' ZFS implementation. You should tell them they're going to make a mistake. When comes to more TCP tests it will be interesting to see how (or if) CPU mitigations affect benchmarks. Keep in mind some Linux distributions have debbuging enabled, so it affects performance in some cases.

          As always, CentOS's out-of-the box power profile decreases performance significantly. If you set your tuned profile, you will see much better performance:

            At first I thought you were trolling. However, I would like to verify this myself. Could you elaborate more about this? Are there any benchmarks you are aware of? It seems Linux out of the box is optimised for slower devices and needs little tuning for 10GbE and faster:
