Scientific Linux, openSUSE, Ubuntu Tests
Ubuntu 11.10 also illustrated subtle performance differences in some of the other compute tests.
Similar to the first Apache results, Scientific Linux 6.1 did lag behind the three other Linux distributions when it came to the file-system / disk performance, namely for the IOzone write performance.
More recent versions of the Linux kernel slowdown the EXT4 file-system performance for PostMark as greater safeguards are in place for ensuring the safety of the data on this leading Linux file-system.
The Dbench disk performance did slowdown with Ubuntu 11.10 when handling multiple clients simultaneously.
