Roby Sherman On Comparing Oracle On Windows vs. Linux

Roby Sherman recently carried out an interesting performance comparison of Oracle 9i Release 2 running Linux and Windows 2000. According to Roby;

"I recently performed a technical, head-to-head comparison of Oracle 9i release 2 running under out-of-the-box versions of Red Hat Linux 7.2 (kernel 2.4.7-10smp) and Windows 2000 Server Edition, on identical Pentium-based hardware. The goal of these tests was identify the strengths and weaknesses of each operating system in the areas of database performance, stability, and ease of administration / support."

Roby's conclusion? Redhat Linux 7.2 is around 38% faster than Windows 2000 Server when carrying out most Oracle tasks. I originally came across Roby's article when reading this thread on Windows vs. Linux performance, which it's also worth taking a look at as well if you get a chance.

Check out the report for the full test scenario together with findings in the areas of performance, stability and ease of use. Whilst you're there, take a look at Roby's excellent "Oracle Inside Out" page, which contains a wealth of Oracle technical notes written in an easy to read, informative style. One to definitely bookmark.
