OK, so you came to conclusion that "performance sucks" based on the the theoretical throughput figures using dd and /dev/zero?

Why don't you try measuring real world performace, with real files, not somethig which is more than likely completely meaningless when two operating systems cache file system operations in different ways.

well, my usage pattern is write a big file and few seconds later read it. So my tests were valid for the use of the computer.

But you have reason, I must provide a more formal report. I redid all test
with bonnie++ and results shows Linux (56848 K/sec) two times faster than
FreeBSD (26347 K/sec)

Any help will be appreciated!
