    Phoronix: Trying Out The BSDs & OpenIndiana On AMD EPYC + Tyan 2U Server

    We have begun in delivering many Linux benchmarks of AMD EPYC, but for those of you interested in the BSD operating systems or even the "open-source Solaris" Illumos/OpenIndiana, I have run some basic tests the past few days using the high-end EPYC 7601 64-thread processor on the TYAN Transport SX TN70A-B8026.

    It's sad that OpenBSD installation didn't work. I was interested in it. :-(

      Thanks for leaving no stone unturned and including these OSes on your list.

      It's unfortunate that they didn't score better and a Driver wasn't functioning but their smaller user base probably has such fixes on their list too.

        Very very cool to see these tests. I wasn't even aware that OpenIndiana still existed, but very happy to hear it does. I will have to test it in the next few hours. I liked to test OpenSolaris, in the same way I like CentOS, but I thought it was a goner when Oracle took over.

          Any chance you could try out a different open solaris distribution - specifically OmniOS community edition? Both OpenIndiana and OmniOS (and SmartOS and Nexenta) are based on Illumos - but the problem with the disks not showing up is probably that they are nvme 1.2 and Open Indiana doesn't have the fixes for that yet - but I think the newer versions of OmniOS community should. Also, can you comment on the mezzanine network card Tyan hopefully included with the unit - is it an Intel X710? We are thinking about buying some of these servers but would prefer OmniOS over ZFS on Linux if the hardware has support.

            No NetBSD?

              Would love to see some OmniOS CE benches. Maybe the installation will work because it's newer than OI.

                  Indeed, I was also very interested in seeing the bench/stability results on this kind of hardware. Pity that Michael just has not switched to different mirror and everything should be working fine...

                    Actually I tried the install 3~4 times with a different mirror each time... Each time it would end up stalling trying to fetch comp62, when removing that from the set, it would end up stalling on some other package. And no issues with my Internet connection on my end.
