OpenSolaris 2009.06 Performance

OpenSolaris 2009.06 is launched at CommunityOne West, San Francisco, on June 1 2009.

One rather important, and interesting question is, 'how good or bad performance are we seeing in OpenSolaris' ?
Well, that is a though question to answer as there are many perspectives of performance, nonetheless there are interesting projects in the OpenSource community like the LibMicro Project that can help you analyze and compare different operating systems, or SysBench for Database performance.

Common practices include running Industry Standard Benchmarks, like those from The Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation or the Transaction Processing Performance Council, or in some cases, partial components of their benchmarks.

Here's some information I got from within Sun:

Given that we didn't have much time since we got the final release of OpenSolaris 2009.06 until the launch date, we did some partial tests to analyze the performance of OpenSolaris.
Please note that these are only partial results and that official benchmark results using industry standard benchmarks will come after the launch !

For example while running SysBench OpenSolaris outperformed RHEL5 by 18% in multi-threading, while running WRF OpenSolaris 2009.06 shows 35% better memory management results over RHEL 5, another result now from MCF demonstrates 22% of Integer Arithmetics for OpenSolaris over RHEL5.

In the near future, there should be many more Benchmark results and LibMicro tests with other popular operating systems.

Comments:

Do you have more details about these tests, e.g. versions, flags, CPUs, individual measurements, etc?

I presume the 22% improvement in integer arithmetics when running MCF <http://www.spec.org/cpu2006/Docs/429.mcf.html> is due to the Sun Studio C compiler, not to OpenSolaris itself.

Garret,
there will be more detailed information, and public benchmarks coming hopefully soon.
Please stay tuned.
