Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 Benchmarks
Phoronix: Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 Benchmarks
With Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 having made it out yesterday, we couldn't resist but to run some new benchmarks of the Lucid Lynx after our original tests last month found Ubuntu 10.04 was off to a poor performance start. In some areas the performance of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Alpha 2 remains lower than in Ubuntu 9.10 -- largely due to performance regressions upstream in the Linux kernel -- but we have also included some very early performance numbers from Fedora 13.
Michael, can you please benchmark the difference of enabling/disabling barriers in EXT4, since most notebooks are battery-backed, and it is safe to disable barriers?
I'm also curious how the "stripe" mount option affects EXT4's performance on RAID systems. I know using the equivalent options on XFS made a shockingly huge difference on my one system.
Thanks in advance
Confusing indeed. Someone needs a beating for these errors.

Has any sense comparing a stable release with an alpha release, assuming the fact that the alpha release has debug codes?
I tried fedora 12 beta and fedora 12 "retail" on the same machine, and fedora 12 beta was completely unusable (Intel Pentium III 1 Ghz, 512 Mb RAM), while fedora 12 is much faster, so where's the point of comparing such uncompleted platforms?
