I have to agree with Daniel here. This list is very low traffic. If you want to reach a broad part of the gentoo community, I think the Gentoo forums could be the way to go. ( <a href="">
</a> ). As for the performance tests, I don&#39;t think either that the server world would give you a lot of differences in terms of performance whether you&#39;re using Gentoo or a popular server-oriented binary distro.<br>
<br>Just my 2 cents...<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 4/29/07, <b class="gmail_sendername">Daniel Armyr</b> &lt;<a href="mailto:daniel.armyr@...">daniel.armyr@...</a>&gt; wrote:</span><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="border-left: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); margin: 0pt 0pt 0pt 0.8ex; padding-left: 1ex;">
&gt; Quite frankly, I&#39;d be surprised if a Gentoo server was significantly<br>&gt; faster than a CentOS 5 (RHEL 5 clone) server on a high-intensity<br>&gt; server workload. But I have tried a lot of distros for scientific
<br>&gt; workstations, and Gentoo does seem to have an advantage there.<br><br>I would have to agree. The performance gains in Gentoo tend to (In the<br>Real World(tm) ) come from not having a bunch of crap instaled an<br>
running that hogs memory rather than from using a particular set of<br>optimizing flags. Further, real-word servers ten to be built with some<br>performance margin in order to handle load spikes, so a few percent<br>here and there wouldn&#39;t really be measurable, assuming you compare to a
<br>system that isn&#39;t bloated.<br><br>Further,this list has averaged at about one post per month since around<br>2003 when I joined, so don&#39;t expect to gett too many replies from here.<br><br>--DA<br><br></blockquote>
