Subject: Are Linux pipes slower than the FreeBSD ones ?
Date: Wed, 05 Mar 2008 10:46:57 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hello all,

everyone knows that there are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and benchmarks.
Despite of this obvious fact, recently I've tried to compare pipe performance on
Linux and FreeBSD systems. Unfortunately, Linux results are poor - ~2x slower than
FreeBSD. The detailed description of the test case, preparation, environment and
results are located at, and everyone are pleased to
look at, reproduce, criticize, etc.
