There were som benchmarking going on a while ago where NetBSD didn’t come out that good compared to the latest Linux kernel and FreeBSD. 2 weeks later NetBSD-current beat FreeBSD when the test was rerun.. 2004-04-26 8:44 pm Would you mind posting those results? Theres a bunch of people out there who would love seeing those benchs. 2004-04-26 8:45 pm I can’t remember where they are right now but the benchmarks were updated to include netbsd current and it did better than freebsd 5 and linux 2.6 2004-04-26 10:11 pm Hi, it seems the site is gone, here is the version from google’s cache: http://www.google.de/search?q=cache:0n5TgSYXC7QJ:bulk.fefe.de/scala… Karsten 2004-04-26 10:52 pm NetBSD’s speed in identifying and eliminating the bottlenecks in their code was nothing short of phenominal. From everything I’ve seen they have the smallest number of developers of any of the major BSD groups (which, as much as it pains me, does not yet include DragonFly yet they seem to be able to pull off the most fantastic feats when they put their minds to it. Perhaps it’s because they are such a small group that they can adapt so quickly. I wonder how long it will be before NetBSD catches up to and then surpasses Linux, as well as how long they’ll be able to hold that position before the Linux guys catch back up themselves. The FreeBSD folks seem to have dropped the ball, and wandered over to sit underneath a tree or something, because I’ve run those benchmarks myself since then, and FreeBSD 5.2.x was pretty bad compared to 5.1. 2004-04-27 5:05 am They don’t test the 2.6 Linux kernel but rather 2.6.0-test 7. A Linux kernel is not really stable until a few releases after it is declared stable. As can be seen that it has only been released by majour distros very recently (SuSE 9.1 and Mandrake 10 Official). Likewise, when it comes out in an RedHat WS product then 2.6 could be considered rock solid. 2004-04-27 9:20 am That was the most recent kernel when the test came out. The guy did the same thing for FreeBSD and NetBSD. Honestly, I doubt the scalability of Linux would change significantly between 2.6.0 and 2.6.10.
