The postgres is doing inserts, but it does not matter. Other tests and
benchs do the same weird results. All the process stay the most of the time
The disk of the non-SMP is a cheap IDE. The disk of the SMP is a SCSI-2
disk. Bonnie and other benchs give to the SMP machine better results (that is
evident). Thay is what does strange that postgres run fater on the non-SMP
(about comparing apples with oranges) Yes, I know. More exactly, I am
comparing a F-1 car with a bike, bike run faster, and I ask on the F-1
experts mailing list why.
RAM: 1Gb on the SMP machine. 128Mb on the non-SMP machine.
Speed: 400MHz on the non-SMP machine. 550 on the SMP one.
The SMP machine is far away better than the non-SMP one. Same OS,
same distro, same Postgres, same test, and a cheap non-SMP machine
outperforms a very expensive HP SMP server. It looks a interblocking stuff,
due to all the postmasters are sleeping but one, meanwhile on the non-SMP
they runs concurently. Does anybody knows what is happening?
