What additional optimizations should they do? It's FreeBSD kernel which is being optimized since twenty years.That's actually pretty cool; GNU/kFreeBSD as a whole has had almost no work done to optimize for speed yet. Some tools that would help with this have not been packaged yet.
Great, so you're thinking disabling journaling makes it safer? It's really unfair to benchmark UFS against modern file systems.The default plain UFS filesystem operates in the safest possible mode, without write cache or journalling and that could be a major bottleneck on slower disks. Maybe that's why it performed better here, on an SSD. This is likely to change soon to UFS+softupdates or UFS+J, and should be an easy performance boost for the next release.
kraftman: this is a new account, not registered by me, hence the lower post count and different username. What on earth could BSD users do to a Phoronix account? How could they possibly lower the post count?
The account was created with the deliberate intention of causing trouble. If somebody has a problem with their account the logical thing to do is to email the administrator, not to create a new account that is suspiciously similar to the last one and radically change one's views.
Wow, I thought this troll couldn't become any more pathetic. I was so wrong.
Please don't argue with this guy, it makes it slightly more difficult to figure out who's who, and leaves more of a mess after I delete his posts. Just use the report "!" link at the bottom left of posts.
