Compare CentOS 6.x to 7.x Performance?

Post by mevans336 » 2014/07/19 19:19:25

I've never really had to benchmark CentOS performance, but I'd like to quantify the difference between 6.5 and 7 now since we are in a virtual environment.

What would be the best or recommended way to do this?

What type of performance?

File serving? If so, what type Samba, NFS, FTP, what?

Webpage serving? If so, static? dynamic? Apache? Ngix? PHP? Java? What?

Database serving? ..... you get the idea.

The OS is just that, the Operating System - most performance depends on the APPLICATION.

We run CentOS under Hyper-V, so I'm just curious to see if 7 brings any basic performance improvements to the table. Are there any benchmarks that are relatively simple to run under Linux? The main area I am concerned about is our JBoss servers, but we use CentOS for so many applications I want to quantify a baseline before I start getting into specific apps.

Phoronix is promising a comparison against 6.5 soon, this was their 7.0 preview
