I use Gentoo at our colo, need all the performance possible, and RHEL/SuSE/CentOS just doesn't cut it.

Do you have any sort of benchmarks as to where Gentoo gets things done, but RHEL/SuSE/CentOS doesn't cut it? I've heard plenty of people make this claim, but no has ever substanciated it.

I actually did my own bench marks between Gentoo and Red Hat a few years ago, when trying to decide which OS to use on a server, and found no performance differences at all, once I made sure all the software was of the same version and was configured the same.
