Ubuntu 6.06 To Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Performance Benchmarks: 10 Years Of Linux Performance

The Redis performance improved a lot with the newer Linux distributions.

The Apache web-server performance on the newer Ubuntu LTS releases is also moving in the right direction.

This round of testing was largely driven by curiosity sake in seeing how the Ubuntu Long-Term Support releases have evolved over the past decade. For the most part, running the same code-bases on the same hardware with a newer version of Ubuntu Linux is noticeably faster than the Ubuntu releases particularly from 6~10 years ago.

If you are curious about any other long-term Linux distribution comparisons on this system like CentOS or Debian before I retire her, feel free to share your suggestions via our forums or on Twitter as soon as possible and I will try to honor the requests. Again, if you enjoy all of the unique Linux/open-source content put out on Phoronix, I repeat my statement from earlier given the recent ad-related pressure and other heavy burdens being faced, consider helping out by subscribing to Phoronix Premium (or even a PayPal tip) so you can view the site ad-free and large articles like this on a single page, all while helping to support the site and make future tests possible.
