Kernel 2.6.5-1.358smp



Hello all,
I have installed Fedora Core2 (Kernel 2.6.5-1.358smp) on a system with Xeon MP processors. I ran the same program (multithreaded) on this system and compared the results Vs. what obtained on the same hardware running RH Advanced Server 3.0 (Kernel 2.4.21-9.ELsmp).

Follows sar output:

Both system time and user time are much higher on Fedora.
Is it something you have already seen happening, or might just be related to kernel configuration ?

Thanks to everybody will reply. In case I can provide more details/mesurements.
One interesting thing is that the program is running even slower on Fedora.

Regards

Raffaele
