I have seen the discussions about fastlock patch and lazy-vxid performance
degradation, so I decided to test it myself.

The setup:
- hardware
Supermicro blade
6xSAS @15k on LSI RAID:
1 disk for system + pg_xlog
4 disk RAID 10 for data
1 disk for spare
2 x Xeon E5405 @2GHz (no HT), 8 cores total

- software
Debian Sid, linux-
Postgresql 9.1 beta2, compiled by debian sources
incrementally applied fastlock v3 and lazy-vxid v1 patches. I have to resolve
manually a conflict in src/backend/storage/lmgr/proc.c
Configuration: increased shared_mem to 2G, max_connections to 500

- pgbench
initiated datasert with scaling factor 100
example command invocation: ./pgbench -h -n -S -T 30 -c 8 -j 8 -M prepared pgtest


clients beta2 +fastlock +lazyvzid local socket
8 76064 92430 92198 106734
16 64254 90788 90698 105097
32 56629 88189 88269 101202
64 51124 84354 84639 96362
128 45455 79361 79724 90625
256 40370 71904 72737 82434

All runs are executed on warm cache, I made some runs for 300s with the same results (tps).
I have done some runs with -M simple with identical distribution across cleints.

I post this results because they somehow contradict with previous results posted on the list. In
my case the patches does not only improve peak performance but also improve the performance
under load - without patches the performance with 256 clients is 53% of the peak performance
that is obtained with 8 clients, with patches the performance with 256 client is 79% of the peak
with 8 clients.

Best regards
Luben Karavelov

P.S. Excuse me for starting new thread - I am new on the list.
