Multiple CPUs and MySQL on BSD

Joerg Sonnenberger pointed me at a recent post on the NetBSD tech-kern@ mailing list: Andrew Doran did some comparisons of MySQL’s sysbench on a multi-CPU system, with different operating systems. It unfortunately doesn’t include DragonFly, as DragonFly apparently would not boot on that system, but I’m a sucker for graphs.

It also shows generally better performance for NetBSD recently than for a Linux 2.6 kernel. This is interesting in part because MySQL performance on BSD has historically been worse than on Linux.

  1. NetBSD says it gives importance to correct design and algorithms, over micro-opimisation and hacks .. perhaps its starting to pay off.
