More OpenSUSE Leap Linux Kernel Benchmarks

SUSE

Earlier this week I posted a number of openSUSE Leap benchmarks of their different kernels: debug, default, desktop, and vanilla. Here's some follow-up tests with more results from comparing the openSUSE 42.1 Leap Beta kernel builds.

The tests are very similar to the article earlier this week, just with many more data-points now after seeing the performance differences from the initial test suite.

Benchmarks Of The OpenSUSE Leap Kernel Flavors

SUSE

Those unfamiliar with the openSUSE kernel flavors can see this Wiki page. Tested for this article was the default, desktop, debug, and vanilla kernel options. During testing, installed by default was the -desktop kernel when installing the openSUSE 42.1 Leap Beta and thus that was what ended up being used in last week's Linux distribution comparison, although the Wiki page indicates that the -default kernel should be the default for desktops and servers. The 4.1.6-10 kernel was used when testing the -debug, -default, -desktop, and -vanilla kernel images obtained from the official openSUSE Leap repository.

When asked to peer into his crystal ball and tell us what he thought was the next wave of innovation, Mr. Miller did not hesitate. “With software defined distributed storage, we are on the cusp of a new revolution,” he stated. IoT and other technologies are bringing “more data and larger data sets kept for longer periods of time. This massive explosion of data really requires a storage revolution. This is our opportunity to bring the power of open source innovation to bear on storage.” Stay tuned for more.

NVIDIA vs. AMD OpenGL & Vulkan Benchmarks With Valve's Dota 2

Yesterday marked the public availability of Dota 2 with a Vulkan renderer after Valve had been showing it off for months. This is the second commercial Linux game (after The Talos Principle) to sport a Vulkan renderer and thus we were quite excited to see how this Dota 2 Vulkan DLC is performing for both NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards. Here are our initial Dota 2 benchmarks with Vulkan as well as OpenGL for reference when using the latest Linux graphics drivers on Ubuntu. Read more

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

Blockchain technology offers many different benefits to enterprise developers — but there’s no cross-industry open standard for how to develop it. That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way. He founded the Apache Software Foundation, was previously on the board of the Mozilla Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and managed tech VC firm Mithril Capital Management. Read more
