 Linux 2.6 Scales the Enterprise

Linux Insider takes a look at Linux 2.6 performance.

"Across the board, the v2.6 kernel outperformed the v2.4 kernel in the database tests, especially on the Itanium box, where it posted a speed increase of 23 percent (a 519-second lead) over the v2.4 kernel. On the Xeon platform, v2.6 showed almost a 13 percent gain (a 200-second lead) over v2.4. And on Opteron, it registered a 29 percent speed increase (a 415-second lead) over v2.4. The most impressive individual test was table inserts, showing the v2.6 kernel providing a 10 percent performance increase (with a 100-second lead) over v2.4 on Xeon, with even better results found on the Opteron and Itanium platforms."
