I originally posted this on lucky.freebsd.questions newsgroup and don't seem to be getting much love, so figured I might get a better response out of one of freebsd's mailing lists. Below is that original post. In case you think a different group may be better for these questions, let me know. Thanks!
-------------------------------------- I've been looking all over the web trying to find the performance pros / cons of running a 4 cpu (16 core) system on FreeBSD. I found some useful info dated as recently as 2007. I know alot has happened in that amount of time, and I'm not familiar enough with the OS coding requirements for such a system to find my answers in the FreeBSD source code. Here's what I'm planning on running. --Does anyone have any suggestions as to why I should/nt run FreeBSD on this system? Tyan S4985 4 x AMD 8346HE 1.8Ghz (quad-core) 16GB DDR2 Also I want to run my main HDD as SSD (Sata II), I found some good info about: OCZ Vertex Series OCZSSD2-1VTX120G 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) --Will FreeBSD give me optimal performance with such an HDD? I'd prefer to run FreeBSD, since I'm most familiar with it, but am not against Linux since my ultimate goal is to get the best performance out of the hardware that I can...
