Trying DragonFlyBSD & FreeBSD On The Intel Core i9 9900K With ASUS PRIME Z390-A

With the SQLite benchmark, DragonFlyBSD 5.3 on the Samsung 970 EVO NVMe SSD was by far the fastest with its HAMMER2 file-system... However, it appears still that HAMMER2 still isn't exhibiting the same fsync behavior as the other operating systems / file-systems tested. So in some cases like SQLite it may be the fastest but doesn't appear to be as safe. Coming in second place for this basic embedded database test was Intel's optimized Clear Linux platform followed by FreeBSD 12.0 Beta 4 with ZFS. Fedora Workstation 29 and Ubuntu 18.10 were out in a distant last place tie.

Similar to what we have seen in our other recent BSD vs. Linux benchmarks, the Golang performance remains much faster on the Linux distributions over DragonFlyBSD / FreeBSD.

The Java performance on the BSDs as measured by the DaCapo Benchmark slightly favored the Linux distributions and in particular Clear Linux was the fastest.
