Checkout osdb, it's the "Open Source Database Benchmark" it supports Postgres and MySQL and is available at http://osdb.sourceforge.net.
To test Postgres and MySQL you will need both installed on the machine you try to compile from, you will need to compile with --with-mysql and --with-postgresql and you may need to specify the install points (i.e. ./configure --with-mysql=/usr/local --with-postgresql=/usr/local). I successfully compiled it on FreeBSD 4.6 but compile failed on HP-UX 11.11.

I make some more test for this. When i enable pconect (persistant) the result amazed me. PGSQL Total time: 0.0070 Execution time: 0.0034 MySQL Total time: 0.0072 Execution time: 0.0027 Now PGSQL is as fast as mysql or maybe a littttttttle slower. So is this normal that non-persistant is so much overhead for pg. Is there any tools to check this. Or is some kind of a bug in php. I use 4.2.3. And pg is 7.2.1. Can somebody make some test. I can send script what i've run. -- tia, Uros mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Friday, October 11, 2002, 5:09:31 AM, you wrote: t> I think i read something a while ago, about mysql being faster, having t> less features, but postgres being a little slower but able to handle t> LARGE databases better than mysql.
