Fedora Server 22 Benchmarks With XFS & The Linux 4.0 Kernel

Fedora 22 is shaping up quite well across the Fedora Workstation, Server, and Cloud offerings. Out of curiosity, this week I ran some initial comparison tests of Fedora Server 21 vs. Fedora Server 22.

Fedora Server 22 notably switches its default file-system over to XFS from EXT4 for new installations. Fedora Server 22 also has the other same updated packages to Fedora 22 like the Linux 4.0.2 kernel and GCC 5.1.1.

I ran these Fedora Server benchmarks on a new AMD FX-8350 system with 16GB of RAM and a 250GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD.

As this was just some quick benchmarking and the results aren't anything too jaw-dropping, I'm making this article short and you can go checkout all of the (mostly minor) performance changes between Fedora Server 21 and 22 via this OpenBenchmarking.org result file.
