CentOS vs. Oracle vs. Scientific Linux 6.1 Performance
Phoronix: CentOS vs. Oracle vs. Scientific Linux 6.1 Performance
While CentOS, Scientific Linux, and Oracle Linux Server are all derived from the same upstream source (Red Hat Enterprise Linux), how does the system performance compare between these RHEL derivatives? Here are some benchmarks of each of the 6.1 releases for Oracle Server, CentOS, and Scientific Linux, as they all do not perform the same.
actual server benchmarks ?
Why was I expecting virtualisation or database workload benchmarks when I saw Oracle Linux in the title ?
ah yes, this is phoronix ...
Oracle Linux (UEK kernel) is intended for RDBMS server workloads
Be interesting to compare apples to apples with some I/O and RDBMS loads. Otherwise the tests risk discovering that a hammer makes a poor screwdriver.
