Stumbled upon this BIND OS benchmark where Gentoo comes out on top!

Code:
Server capacity at breaking point
OS                             Queries/second
Linux Gentoo 2.6.20.7          93,000
Linux Fedora Core 2.6.20.7     87,000
FreeBSD-7-CURRENT 200708       84,000
FreeBSD-6-stable 200708        55,000
FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE            51,000
Solaris-10 DevelExpr 5/07      50,000
NetBSD-4.0-Beta 200708         42,000
OpenBSD 4.1-snap-20070427      35,000
Windows 2003 Server            22,000
Windows XP Pro64 5.2.3790 SP2  20,000

That's pretty damn impressive.

I've never been one of those who uses gentoo "'cause compiling from source makes the binaries faster!!eleventy-one!!" or whatever, but that does give me a certain sense of satisfaction...

Although it would be really helpful to know what the setup on the gentoo and other boxes were (Linux Gentoo 2.6.20.7 doesn't tell us much, we don't even kmow what arch this was on...).

Take that ha1f, you smelly bsdtard!

as the other OS in the test are not explicit 64 bit i'd expect them to use x86 for Gentoo also; at least the page does list Win XP instead of XP Pro64. On the other hand the boxes have quad cpus and 16GB so 64bit would fit better; but looking on their test-zone db-size this shouldn't matter too much.

Neat! The Gentoo statistic is laughable compared to Windows 2003 server.

What I would like to see is how other Linux distro's stack up.

Um.. Isn't FreeBSD-6-stable and FreeBSD-6.2 the same thing? I thought FreeBSD 6 went stable with 6.2?

We brought these numbers to the attention of the FreeBSD development team, and will re-test when FreeBSD 7.1 is released.

FreeBSD 7.0 hasn't been officially released yet.. It's still an RC..

But.. this was almost 5 months ago.. Who knows what the benchmarks are now..

This is something id like to see more of. It's been awhile since there have been any real benchmarks of the different distros. with the bigger and better hardware rolling around i think that few % increase that Gentoo gives is getting bigger i think.

A long time ago I tested a Linux distribution (I think it was Mandrake) against FreeBSD for mathematical computations and the Linux was about twice faster than FreeBSD! Here we see almost the same :D
