How Three BSD Operating Systems Compare To Ten Linux Distributions

First up are some basic disk/file-system tests.

DragonFlyBSD and OpenBSD had issues building this test profile, but PC-BSD had no troubles with this SQLite test and it flew past the Linux distributions. PC-BSD 10.2 with the default ZFS file-system was faster for this embedded SQL database library than the EXT4 and ZFS Linux distributions tested.

With the compile test of CompileBench, which is partially dependent upon disk performance but also the processor, showed PC-BSD 10.2 still doing well but Intel's Clear Linux 5700 came out in front. OpenBSD 5.8 meanwhile with its FFS file-system was in a distant last place.

With the initial create task of COmpile Bench, PC-BSD 10.2 dropped back to the end of the pact and was just faster than CentOS 7 while OpenBSD 5.8 remained in last place.

With the PostMark test profile that seems to be primarily limited by fsync performance, PC-BSD 10.2 came out just barely ahead of the top-performing Linux distributions. OpenBSD 5.8 and DragonFlyBSD 4.4.1 were meanwhile in last.
