Changes from 2.6.9-22 to 2.6.9-34

Post by joekro » 2006/04/03 16:36:22

Hello,

We saw a big performace increase in one of our applications when we upgraded to the 2.6.9-34 kernel from 2.6.9-22. (at least I think it was the kernel upgrade.) The application (Xerox Docushare 4.01) is using postgres 8.0. Any Idea what could have changed in the kernel for us to see this dramatic performace boost.

Dell PE2850
3.2GHZ x 2 CPU
3 GB RAM
Dell Perc 4 raid

Thanks,

Joe

Anyone or more of the changes in the Change Log.

To get an idea download any one of the 2.6.9-34 kernels and review the log, it could be the HT fixes or the scsi2 fixes or???

Example; rpm -qp --changelog kernel-2.6.9-34.EL.x86_64.rpm | less

I found the change log on the redhat site. I guess It could be a few things. Just hope it stays 'fixed' with future kernel upgrades.

Thanks,

Joe
