"There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics"
-- Benjamin Disraeli
This site focuses on three basic uses of benchmarking:
- Comparing similar versions of Linux on different hardware: useful
in measuring or predicting the performance of hardware for Linux and Linux
applications, and helpful in selecting hardware.
- Comparing different versions of Linux on the same hardware:
helps to spot areas in the Linux kernel which need tuning for performance
and to measure the progress of Linux towards higher performance.
- Comparing Linux to other operating systems on the same hardware:
helps to find areas where Linux could use improvement, and to identify
strengths and weaknesses in different operating systems. Should be done
with a great degree of detachment and perspective, as inter-OS benchmarking
can also be quite a source of controversy to say the least!
