bonnie++ on on Frankenbox vs. HP Proliant N40L


I’ve got a few OpenIndiana boxes kicking around at the house, and I got to thinking that maybe my rather modern HP Proliant N40L with mirrored Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB disks and 8GB of RAM wasn’t all that speedy.

So I installed bonnie++ from the package repository and decided to see how the N40L, dogface, measures up against tuna, an old frankencomputer that I built from parts sourced from many places over many years.

In a nutshell, tuna is running an old AMD 64 X2 6000+ processor with 4GB RAM and a pair of Western Digital Blue 500GB drives in a mirrored zpool.

The new kid, dogface, is an HP Proliant N40L microserver with 8GB RAM and a pair of Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB hard drives (the SATA3 flavor, even though the controller is only SATA2) also in a mirrored zpool configuration.

Both hosts are running OpenIndiana 151a6 with the latest patches as of the time of this writing.

Without further delay… (apologies for the wide formatting)
