    Please redo this benchmark, if you need help with configuration of ports/packages/machine let me know and I would gladly assist.

    And maybe it's time to get some multi-socket (4-way or bigger) test platforms, be them even older (yeah, I know, then can be expensive). It would be more interesting than watching single socket system benches, which bring very little surprises.
    I know that the vast majority of the software tested in the benchmarks actually works in BSD. Hell, I run redis and postgres in production on FreeBSD at work. It would be **very** interesting to see error logs.

    The OpenMPI CFD solver results show starting to hit the point that all CFD solvers eventually do of 'parallel slowdown', where the amount of inter-process communication workload has increased to the point it out-weights any gains. The gains for CFD solvers from hyperthreading are generally known to be very marginal, so 10c/20t is more likely to show that effect than 20c.
    It is not uncommon for hyperthreading to be turned off on a scientific workstation. As noted sometime the gains just aren't there, sometimes you even see regressions.

    well same here, why does freeBSD 11 do not appear in half of the tests ?

    Win 10 might have a bottleneck in process destruction ATM (such as during compilation) that also affects the user interface:

    So how about not doing this kind of snark?
    I have great respect for anyone else who puts an OS together, be it a BSD variant or a Linux distro. Doing this is a lot of work, often thankless and all you get is bugs and complaints...
    Anyone doing that deserves at least that much respect. You can think one is better than the other, and each OS will have their strengths and weaknesses, but hard work it is.

    Clear Linux currently has that patch backported... and the version in these benchmarks has that.
