This link: http://developer.osdl.org/markw/ takes you to Mark Wong's
database developer page. The top set of links shows performance results
for Linux kernels running an OLTP workload (dbt-2) under PostgreSQL. He
has numbers for ia32 and ia64 under different file system types.
To do a "good enough" comparison, one would need to port this test kit
to solaris. So far, this kit is only running on Linux. No one, to my
knowledge has it running on any other platform. But I suspect there are
some working to port the kits.
