FreeBSD VM vs Linux VM Revisited

“In my October, column I described the new VM written by kernel hacker Andrea Arcangeli. In that article, I promised I would come back to my FreeBSD versus Linux comparison that I ran in my February 2001 column. Many people say FreeBSD has a very good virtual memory manager. As it turns out, I pretty much proved them right in that article. Now, with the new VM engine in Linux as of 2.4.10, things might look different, so I prepared a new test environment for the benchmark.” Moshe Bar benchmarks the VMs between Linux and the previous FreeBSD, version 4.3.
