MySQL Faster on Solaris 10 than on RHEL AS 4

Posted by Bill Bradford on Apr 21, 2006

Sun today announced new benchmark results involving the performance of the open source MySQL database running an online transaction processing workload on 8-way Sun Fire(TM) V40z servers. The testing, which measured the performance of both read/write and read-only operations, showed that MySQL 5.0.18 running on Solaris 10 executed the same functions up to 64 percent faster in read/write mode and up to 91 percent faster in read-only mode than when it ran on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Advanced Server Edition OS.
