Linux has iSCSI...which hands Fbsd a real beating in the server space. I work on projects at more customers than I can keep track of that -have- to use Linux in the middle of Fbsd farms just because of the amazing lack of iscsi support. Linux has been doing iscsi since what..2002 or so? Maybe 2003? C;mon..yes, I know a brave soul is starting work on it now, but how did the Fbsd effort let this lie for so long?

For instance FreeBSD will give roughly 20 to 30% better overall performance compared to Linux.

Hello, As far as I can tell Linux only had mainstream/official iscsi support in 2.6.12 (2005-06). -- Alexandre Vieira - [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
