[FreeBSD] FreeBSD 7.0 ออกแล้ว

วันนี้ผมเข้าไปดู freebsd ปรากฏว่า freebsd 7.0 ออกแล้ว ซึ่งดูจาก release announce แล้วดูดีมากเลยครับสำหรับไปใช้กับ multiprocessing

Dramatic improvements in performance and SMP scalability shown by various database and other benchmarks, in some cases showing peak performance improvements as high as 350% over FreeBSD 6.X under normal loads and 1500% at high loads. When compared with the best performing Linux kernel (2.6.22 or 2.6.24) performance is 15% better. Results are from benchmarks used to analyze and improve system performance, results with your specific work load may vary. Some of the changes that contribute to this improvement are:

  • The 1:1 libthr threading model is now the default.
  • Finer-grained IPC, networking, and scheduler locking.
  • A major focus on optimizing the SMP architecture that was put in place during the 5.x and 6.x branches.
