Hi all,

I did some benchmarking using pgbench and postgresql CVS head, compiled 

The results are attached. It looks like 2.6.0-test4 does better under load but 
under light load the performance isn't that great. OTOH 2.4.20 suffer major 
degradation compare to 2.6. Looks like linux is also getting heavy at lower 
end. Of course it isn't as bad as solaris as yet..:-)

IIRC in a kernel release note recently, it was commented that IO scheduler is 
still being worked on and does not perform as much for random seeks, which 
exaclty what database needs.

How does these number stack up with other platforms? Anybody with SCSI disks 
out there? I doubt IDE has some role to play with this.
